The Basic HYSPLIT tutorial can be used to familiarize yourself with the installation
of HYSPLIT, particularly on a Windows computer and Mac (Linux is similar and can run the same GUIs),
how to run the model through the included
series of menus (GUIs), and how to interpret the results of a simulation. The Extended
tutorial is meant to be a guide to running more complex applications on a Windows or
LINUX computer through a series of batch files. You will need to install the Windows/Mac/LINUX
version of the model prior to running any of the examples.
Basic Tutorial (2021) - new users
should review this material to understand the model before requesting help
from the developers. The tutorial has been written with options available
in Version 5.1.0 of the model, which can be downloaded from https://www.ready.noaa.gov/HYSPLIT.php.
Extended Tutorial (2017) -
advanced users will benefit from reviewing this tutorial to understand how to configure the model
for more complex simulations. You will need to download the zip file from the main page in order
to run these simulations on your computer. The tutorial has been written with options
available in Version 912 of the model, but will also work with more recent versions.

Vmixing Tutorial - a description of how to
use the vmixing program.
Vmixing is run from the command-line or from scripts—rather than the Graphical User
Interface—and so is used by more advanced users. It extracts data and calculates
vertical mixing parameters from meteorological data.
