LONG-TERM GOALS. The long term goal of this project is to determine the mesoscale atmospheric predictability and how it relates to synoptic scale uncertainty due to sampling and data assimilation of incomplete samples on the larger scale. OBJECTIVES. The objectives of this research are to determine the ability to numerically predict mesoscale coastal structures in a variety of synoptic scale situations and demonstrate for given small scale structures the time ranges under which they might be considered predictable. The answer is probably dependent on the data assimilation system and one objective is to determine this sensitivity.
