Abstract:

One goal of this effort is to improve the skill of mesoscale numerical weather prediction NWP over coastal regions of complex terrain and to evaluate the effectiveness of high-resolution NWP for civilian and military applications. Other important goals include understanding the structural and dynamical interactions that occur as synoptic weather systems interact with coastal terrain, and the nature of coastal gap flows and other meteorological phenomena associated with coastal orography.
