The website is located at http://nas.cgrer.uiowa.edu/ABC/abc-90x60-current/pmenu.html. It provided real time forecasts for up to 4 days of relevant meteorological parameters, air-mass tracers indicating the source and age of a given air-mass and three dimensional concentration profiles of aerosols, radicals and other trace gases. The publicly available website was set up such that it was very user friendly and scientistshttp://nas.cgrer.uiowa.edu/ABC/abc-90x60-current/pmenu.html were able to get 4-dimensional animated forecasts at the click of a mouse button.
