Abstract:

The long-term goal is to improve the understanding of cloud and boundary layer processes within the littoral through the use of the Coupled OceanAtmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS and relevant observations. Improve the moist and boundary layer physics schemes used in COAMPS based on knowledge gained through extensive testing and verification of high-resolution 1-20 km horizontal grid spacing numerical simulations in the littoral.
