Abstract:

The long-term goals of this proposal are to improve the skill of mesoscale numerical weather prediction NWP over coastal regions of complex terrain and to evaluate the effectiveness of local NWP for civilian and military applications. An ancillary goal is to understand the structural and dynamical interactions that occur as synoptic weather systems interact with coastal terrain.
