An Overview of Verification in Support of GSD Model Development and the Evolution of Process-Oriented Analysis Tools

Verification has been and continues to be essential to the development and operational transition of Global Science Division (GSD) models, particularly the Rapid Refresh (RAP) and the High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR). To that end, the GSD Assimilation Development Branch (ADB) has developed and maintained a verification system over the past d...

A Verification Approach Used in Developing the Rapid Refresh and Other Numerical Weather Prediction Models

Developing and improving numerical weather prediction models such as the Rapid Refresh (RAP) and High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) requires a well-designed, easy-to-use evaluation capability using observations. Owing to the very complex nonlinear interactions between the data assimilation system and the representation of various physics compo...
