Ensembles, Ensemble-Based Data Assimilation, Model Post-Processing, and Regional NWP: Initial Results of the University of Washington CSTAR Project
This presentation will give a mid-project status report on results of the University of Washington/NWS CSTAR project on regional weather analysis and prediction. Specifically, this presentation will describe:
operational Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF)
data assimilation/prediction system that has been running for four
2. High-resolution numerical weather prediction over the
3. A grid-based bias removal system suitable for high-resolution mesoscale models.
4. An evaluation of a regional high-resolution mesoscale ensembles system based on the operational analyses/forecasts of several operational centers.
5. Regional data collection, quality control and verification research and operations.
