Abstract:

Estimation of mean square prediction error of wind components is required in the optimal interpolation OI process in numerical prediction of atmospheric variables. Statistical models with log-linear scale parameters which include covariates are described for the prediction error. Data from February and April of 1991 are used to fit the model parameters and to study the predictive ability of the models. This preliminary investigation indicates that observational and first guess wind components can be helpful in predicting mean square prediction error for wind components.
