Abstract (including Motivation, Hypothesis and Method)

The Eta-12 parallel system is being used to run a test with these changes to the Eta 3DVAR analysis:

  • Surface temperature data over land are excluded
  • Corrected an error which caused different amounts of radar wind to be selected, depending on the number of processors.
  • Added an an additional namelist parameter, delhour_sfc, which sets the time window for surface data. Its default value is .1, which limits the window to +/- 6min.
