The Rapid Refresh Forecast System (RRFS) is currently under development and aims to replace the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) operational suite of regional and convective scale modeling systems in the next upgrade. In order to achieve skillful forecasts comparable to the current operational suite, each component of the RRF...Institutions National Center for Atmospheric Research - NCAR National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA
The Community Radiative Transfer Model (CRTM), a sensor-based radiative transfer model, has been used within the Gridpoint Statistical Interpolation (GSI) system for directly assimilating radiances from infrared and microwave sensors. We conducted numerical experiments to illustrate how including aerosol radiative effects in CRTM calculations ch...Institution National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA
For a variational data assimilation (DA) system that assimilates radiance observations, the simulated brightness temperature (BT) at the top of the atmosphere and the corresponding Jacobians carried out by the radiance observation operator are needed information. Previous studies reported that the incorporation of aerosol information into the ra...Institution National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA
The US operational global data assimilation system provides updated analysis and forecast fields every six hours, which is not frequent enough to handle the rapid error growth associated with hurricanes or other storms. This motivates development of an hourly-updating global data assimilation system, but observational data latency can be a barri...Institutions Earth System Research Laboratory - ESRL National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA
