Impact of ASCAT Scatterometer Wind Observations on the High Resolution Limited Area Model ( HIRLAM ) in an Operational Context .

  title={Impact of ASCAT Scatterometer Wind Observations on the High Resolution Limited Area Model ( HIRLAM ) in an Operational Context .},
  author={S. W. H. de Haan and G. J. Marseille and P. Valk},
Denial experiments, also denoted Observing System E xperiments (OSEs), are used to determine the impact of an observing system on the forecast quality of a Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) model. When the impact is neutral or positive, new observations from this observing system may be admitted to an operational f recasting system based on that NWP model. A drawback of the method applied in most den ial experiments is that they neglect the operational time constraint on the delivery of obse… CONTINUE READING
