For simple questions like this, please use the mailing list (see RegisteredUser), not the ticket system.

There is a scaling of 1E12 between emission and concentration, thus, if you consider your input to be in kg, the output will be in 1E-12 kg/m3 = ng/m3. This is also explained in the model documentation, see for example Table 2. If you consider your input to be in g, the concentration output obviously would be pg/m3.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
