Abstract:

The long-term goal of the SatelliteNWP Data Fusion for Weather Assessment DaFWA project is to determine the feasibility of combining numerical weather prediction NWP and satellite data for the purpose of estimating tactical weather elements in data-void locations. Our objective is to improve upon the utilization of both remotely sensed data and numerical weather prediction data in order to estimate current sensible weather conditions typically available by observation only. We are emphasizing this condition because many of the military s operations deal with situations where observed data are not available. The initial tactical weather element considered for study is cloud base height, particularly for low clouds.
