Abstract:

Final status and results of the high resolution mesoscalemicroscale modeling and forecasting system with advanced upper troposphere and lower stratosphere physics and fast computational algorithms are described. The Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere UTLS-2 v1.0 software, designed to forecast the presence of turbulence in UTLS, demonstrates the utility of the software to generate predictions of turbulent areas and to provide information needed to make a fly or no-fly rating. The UTLS-2 software is now positioned to be transitioned into an operational state for customer-specific applications and operational scenarios that have been identified in this development phase. Models can be adapted to solve other complex problems in complex terrain or urban areas such as biological, chemical, and radiological dispersion.
