Timing

Users interact with the website to generate scenarios for burning for the next day. Overnight, MM5 and ClearSky run to produce animated scenario results for viewing the morning of the predicted period. Over the day of the prediction, monitoring results become available; thus the day after a prediction, the comparisons of the receptor site prediction and actual monitoring results are made available.
