Regional Modeling

The major objective of the regional modeling activity is to assimilate the process study data and satellite observations and high resolution one-dimensional and LES model output to produce a more robust representation of the sub-grid scale effects of NES instabilities in regional and larger-scale circulation modeling. This will be attained by developing a physically-based parameterization of the effect of NES convective instabilities that will be then embedded in the regional-scale model.

During the field program, modeling under way will assimilate concurrent observations and help guide measurement decisions.
