A realistic representation of the evolution of the dry convective boundary layer in mesoscale and large-scale atmospheric models has been an elusive goal for many years. In this paper the performance of a new mixinglength formulation for the dry convective boundary layer is evaluated in the context of the Coupled Ocean– Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction(More)
Acknowledgements I would like to take this space to express my gratitude to the people who made this thesis possible. I express my deepest gratitude to my supervisor professor Dr. Zita A. Vale for all the provided means she gave me to execute this thesis and all the positive energy, productive discussions and exceptional assistance. I greatly appreciate her(More)
A model evaluation approach is proposed in which weather and climate prediction models are analyzed along a Pacific Ocean cross section, from the stratocumulus regions off the coast of California, across the shallow convection dominated trade winds, to the deep convection regions of the ITCZ—the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment Cloud System(More)
Objectives of our study include: i) examination of the predictability of regional-scale weather phenomenon that have a high impact on military missions, ii) exploration of new methods to initialize ensembles for global and mesoscale atmospheric models, and iii) diagnosis of mohourdel error and uncertainty, and inclusion in ensemble design. For the global(More)
