quasi-Lagrangian analysis in a Eurlerian grid?

Check. Most air quality and climate models in the United States use Eulerian grids where the model is fixed in space and the air flows through it. This can make analyzing plumes difficult. In response to this need, I developed an analysis tool for air quality models that gives scientists a Lagrangian-like perspective (like riding the plume, yee-haw!). Yosuke Kimura, a collaborator at the University of Texas at Austin, created a similar tool. Reviewers of his paper suggested we compare and contrast and the results are in press at Atmospheric Environment.
