An Evaluation of a Hybrid, Terrain-Following Vertical Coordinate in the WRF-based RAP and HRRR Models

A new hybrid, sigma-pressure vertical coordinate was recently added to the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model in an effort to reduce numerical noise in the model equations near complex terrain. Testing of this hybrid, terrain-following coordinate was undertaken in the WRF-based Rapid Refresh (RAP) and High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRR...

Improvement of Mountain Wave Turbulence Forecast in the NOAA’s Rapid Refresh (RAP) Model with Hybrid Vertical Coordinate System

Spurious mountain-wave features have been reported as false alarms of light-or-stronger numerical weather prediction (NWP)-based cruise level turbulence forecasts especially over the western mountainous region of North America. To reduce this problem, a hybrid sigma-pressure vertical coordinate system was implemented in NOAA’s operational Rapid ...
