FAQ
Q: Where do you get data from?
A: Boundary and initial conditions are provided by a large mesoscale model such as WRF/MM5, RAMS, NCEP ETA models. Boundary and initial conditions are also provided by local upper air soundings.

Q: What are the difference between A2Cflow and CFD models?
A: A2Cflow fuses seamlessly atmospheric and CFD model capabilities. A2Cflow predicts microscale meteorological variables more accurately than mesoscale or CFD models.

Q: What is a diagnostic flow model?
A: A diagnostic flow model obtains wind distribtions by interporation of data with the mass conservation constraint. A diagnostic model is simple and fast in computation and suitable for analysis.

Q: What is a prognostic flow model?
A: A prognostic flow model forecasts wind field based on a set of conservation equations such as for the mass, momentum, internal energy, and kinetic energy of turbulence.
