I'm very interested in your ideas to get the DHSVM analyses done in GRASS GIS rather than ArcGIS and would like to help in your efforts. We have and use both, but our operational systems are Linux, plus I do a lot of research on Mac OS X. As you are no doubt aware, GRASS is far more advanced now from where it was 5 years ago.
