 1. "retemporalize" from yearly (single) timestep to CMAQ-style emissions files (e.g., [this][emis_mole_N2O_2008_12US1_cmaq_cb05_soa_2008ab_08c.ncf.gz], when `gunzip`ed) containing hourly emissions usable for any day in the model year=2008. 
 1. check that mass is (more or less) conserved in all of the above

     * an [R script][reformat_GEIA_to_netCDF.r] to convert the input to a [netCDF][] file, and plot it. The driver should display [a PDF][reformatting plot] if properly configured.
     * another [R script][regrid_global_to_AQMEII.r] to regrid the netCDF, and plot the output. The driver should display [a PDF][regridding plot] if properly configured. This PDF currently has 2 pages (p1 using `raster::plot` and p2 using `fields::image.plot`).
     * an [NCL script][retemp_reunit.ncl] to [convert regridded concentrations][GEIA input processing @ project wiki] to units appropriate for [CMAQ][CMAQ @ CMAS].
-    * an [NCL script][check_conservation.ncl] to check conservation of mass from input to output. Given that the output domain (AQMEII-NA) is significantly smaller than the input domain (global), it merely reports the fraction of mass (as mgN) in output vs input, and compares that to an estimation of the land area of the output domain relative to the input domain. Current output is
