  • A new framework for probabilistic seasonal forecasts based on circulation
           type classifications and driven by an ensemble global model

    • Abstract: A new framework for probabilistic seasonal forecasts based on circulation type classifications and driven by an ensemble global model
      Gianni Messeri, Riccardo Benedetti, Alfonso Crisci, Bernardo Gozzini, Matteo Rossi, Roberto Vallorani, and Giampiero Maracchi
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 183-190, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-183-2018, 2018
      This new framework for high resoluted seasonal forecast allows an easier use of the information contained in the complex system of atmospheric circulations through their reduction to a limited number of circulation types starting from a global ensemble model. Further investigations are ongoing in order to lead predictions of the risk of heavy rainfall, drought or heat waves, all important parameters for agriculture, water management and severe weather risk assessment.

  • 1845–2016 gridded dataset of monthly precipitation over the upper Adda
           river basin: a comparison with runoff series

    • Abstract: 1845–2016 gridded dataset of monthly precipitation over the upper Adda river basin: a comparison with runoff series
      Alice Crespi, Michele Brunetti, Maurizio Maugeri, Roberto Ranzi, and Massimo Tomirotti
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 173-181, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-173-2018, 2018
      The gridded dataset of 1845–2016 monthly precipitation series over the upper Adda river basin is presented. It allows to study the evolution of the precipitation regime over the region and to reconstruct extreme past events. The areal 1845–2016 annual precipitation series over the basin is in overall agreement with annual runoff. While the precipitation series shows no significant trend, a significant decrease is pointed out for runoff, probably driven by both natural and anthropic causes.

  • Current gust forecasting techniques, developments and challenges

    • Abstract: Current gust forecasting techniques, developments and challenges
      Peter Sheridan
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 159-172, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-159-2018, 2018
      Gusts represent short-lived extremes within the time variation of the wind. Despite their short duration, they are responsible for the majority of damage and disruption due to wind. This study reviews new literature and innovative methods regarding the forecasting of gusts for weather and climate applications, the challenges and benefits that come with increasing resolution in computer models of the weather, and areas, such as wind power, where gust forecasting attains increasing importance.

  • Case study of the winter 2013/2014 extreme wave events off the west coast
           of Ireland

    • Abstract: Case study of the winter 2013/2014 extreme wave events off the west coast of Ireland
      Jelena Janjić, Sarah Gallagher, and Frédéric Dias
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 145-157, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-145-2018, 2018
      This study examines the synoptic conditions around Ireland during the winter of 2013/2014, which produced record-breaking sea states and severe coastal damage. Using a wave model, we analysed four of the most energetic storms providing an overview of the height, directionality and periodicity of the waves. This study provides important information for the development of renewable ocean energy extraction, where deployment location selection and survivability are a primary concern.

  • Monthly solar radiation in the tropical Atlantic Ocean: Can its spatial
           variations be captured by the current configuration of the PIRATA
           moorings'

    • Abstract: Monthly solar radiation in the tropical Atlantic Ocean: Can its spatial variations be captured by the current configuration of the PIRATA moorings'
      Mélodie Trolliet and Lucien Wald
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 127-136, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-127-2018, 2018
      The present work aims at contributing to the proper design of networks of measuring moorings with regard to the downwelling solar irradiance at surface (DSIS). Considering the yearly profiles of the monthly DSIS, this article studies whether the 17 moorings within the existing PIRATA network are well geographically distributed so that they capture the spatial variations of the yearly profiles in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. A clustering technique is performed onto the HelioClim-3v5 satellite-derived gridded dataset of DSIS spanning 12 years, thus yielding 17 zones of similar yearly profiles. It was found that the mean yearly profiles of several zones are similar to the measured ones at the three moorings having enough measurements to perform the comparison. Zones have clear connections with the climatology of the region and circulation regimes. The geographical distribution of the moorings has been analysed with regard to the zoning. In the northern region of the tropical basin, each zone contains at least one PIRATA mooring. Hence, the configuration of the PIRATA network is appropriate to reflect the spatial variations of the yearly profiles in this northern part. In the southern basin, the coverage is less complete; several zones do not contain any PIRATA mooring. Thus, the network does not capture the spatial variations of the yearly profiles and this may induce misinterpretation of the PIRATA measurements at synoptic scales. It was also found that the computation of latitudinal or longitudinal averages of irradiance may be wrong if based solely on measurements from moorings without taking into account the spatial representativeness of a mooring.

  • Description of a coastal impact event in Basque Country: the 9 February
           2016 case

    • Abstract: Description of a coastal impact event in Basque Country: the 9 February 2016 case
      Santiago Gaztelumendi, Joseba Egaña, Pedro Liria, and José A. Aranda
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 137-143, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-137-2018, 2018
      In this work we analysed a case from 9 February 2016 from two points of view, the meteorological–ocean characteristics of the event and the damage produced during the episode in the Basque coastal area. On 7 and 8 February 2016 an intense zonal circulation was established in the Atlantic, with very strong westerly winds (over 100 km h−1) and high fetch (more than 2000 km). As a consequence a strong swell (over 7 m) arrived on the Basque coast affecting littoral areas. The wave characteristics are particularly energetic during the morning of the 9 February, which had a significant wave of 9.5 m and a peak period of 20 s in deep water (Donostia buoy). The arrival of these energetic waves coincides with high tide during spring when the sea level reaches 4.69 m in the Port of Bilbao. Overtopping indexes exceeded red-level thresholds established within the Euskalmet coastal warning system and the wave impact resulted in relevant damage (more than EUR 3 million) in different littoral areas. This event is the first red-level case since the new Euskalmet warning procedure became operational at the beginning of 2015.

      Measurements of sub-daily (e.g. hourly) rainfall totals are essential if we are to understand short, intense bursts of rainfall that cause flash floods. We might expect the intensity of such events to increase in a warming climate but these are poorly realised in projections of future climate change. The INTENSE project is collating a global dataset of hourly rainfall measurements and linking with new developments in climate models to understand the characteristics and causes of these events.

  • Bias adjustment for threshold-based climate indicators

    • Abstract: Bias adjustment for threshold-based climate indicators
      Peter Hoffmann, Christoph Menz, and Arne Spekat
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 107-116, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-107-2018, 2018
      The adjustment of bias, i.e., systematic errors, of climate models are a necessity when comparing results of an ensemble of these models. Usually, the meteorological parameters such as temperature or rainfall amounts themselves are subject to bias adjustments. We present a new method to apply bias adjustment to so-called climate indicators which are derived from those parameters, e.g., the number of days warmer than 30 °C or the number of days with more than 20 mm of rain.

  • Mapping users' expectations regarding extended-range forecasts

    • Abstract: Mapping users' expectations regarding extended-range forecasts
      Tiina Ervasti, Hilppa Gregow, Andrea Vajda, Terhi K. Laurila, and Antti Mäkelä
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 99-106, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-99-2018, 2018
      An online survey was used to map the needs and preferences of the Finnish general public about extended-range forecasts and their presentation. Survey results guided the co-design process of novel extended-range forecasts in the project. The respondents considered that the tailored extended-range forecasts would be beneficial in planning activities, preparing for weather risks and scheduling everyday life. They also valued impact information higher than advice on how to prepare for the impacts.

    • Abstract: Overview and first results of the Wind and Storms Experiment (WASTEX): a field campaign to observe the formation of gusts using a Doppler lidar
      Florian Pantillon, Andreas Wieser, Bianca Adler, Ulrich Corsmeier, and Peter Knippertz
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 91-97, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-91-2018, 2018
      The Wind and Storms Experiment (WASTEX) was conducted during the winter 2016–2017 in the Upper Rhine Valley to better understand the formation of wind gusts during the passage of storms. The key instrument of the field campaign was a scanning Doppler lidar, which provides accurate wind observations along its beam with high spatial and temporal resolutions and within a range of several km. Results from WASTEX should help improving the representation of wind gusts in weather and climate models.

    • Abstract: Comparison of radiation parametrizations within the HARMONIE–AROME NWP model

      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 81-90, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-81-2018, 2018
      Global radiation forecasts by HARMONIE-AROME numerical weather prediction model were compared to observations over Finland in spring 2017 when convective clouds, rain and snow showers were frequent. In HARMONIE-AROME, three different schemes for parametrization of the atmospheric radiation transfer are available. Differences between the schemes and observations showed up especially as variations in the hourly scale. The results by the schemes were closer to each other than to the observations.

  • Crowdsourcing of weather observations at national meteorological and
           hydrological services in Europe

    • Abstract: Crowdsourcing of weather observations at national meteorological and hydrological services in Europe
      Thomas Krennert, Georg Pistotnik, Rainer Kaltenberger, and Christian Csekits
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 71-76, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-71-2018, 2018
      National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) increase theirefforts to deliver impact-based weather forecasts and warnings. At the sametime, a desired increase in cost-efficiency prompts these services toautomatize their weather station networks and to reduce the number of humanobservers, which leads to a lack of ground truth information aboutweather phenomena and their impact. A possible alternative is to encouragethe general public to submit weather observations, which may include crucialinformation especially in high-impact situations.
      We wish to provide an overview of the state and properties of existingcollaborations between NMHSs and voluntary weather observers or stormspotters across Europe. For that purpose, we performed a survey among30 European NMHSs, from which 22 NMHSs returned our questionnaire. This studysummarizes the most important findings and evaluates the use ofcrowdsourced information. 86 % of the surveyed NMHSs utilizeinformation provided by the general public, 50 % have established officialcollaborations with spotter groups, and 18 % have formalized them. Theobservations are most commonly used for a real-time improvement of severeweather warnings, their verification, and an establishment of a climatologyof severe weather events.
      The importance of these volunteered weather and impact observations hasstrongly risen over the past decade. We expect that this trend will continueand that storm spotters will become an essential part in severe weatherwarning, like they have been for decades in the United States of America. Arising number of incoming reports implies that quality management willbecome an increasing issue, and we finally discuss an idea how to handle this challenge.

  • Trusted Spotter Network Austria – a new standard to utilize crowdsourced
           weather and impact observations

    • Abstract: Trusted Spotter Network Austria – a new standard to utilize crowdsourced weather and impact observations

      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 77-80, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-77-2018, 2018
      Information from voluntary storm spotters has been an increasingly importantpart for the severe weather warning process at the Zentralanstalt fürMeteorologie and Geodynamik (ZAMG), Austria's National Weather Service, foralmost 15 years. In 2010 a collaboration was formalized and an annualtraining was established to educate voluntary observers into TrustedSpotters. The return of this investment is a higher credibility of theirobservations after these spotters have undergone a basic meteorologicaltraining and have become aware of their responsibility.
      The European Severe Storms Laboratory (ESSL) was included to thiscollaboration to adopt their successful quality control system of severeweather reports, which is employed in the European Severe Weather DatabaseESWD. That way, reports from Trusted Spotters automatically obtain a higherquality flag, which enables a faster processing by forecasters on duty forsevere weather warnings, when time is a critical issue. The concept ofcombining training for voluntary storm spotters and a thorough qualitymanagement was recognized as a Best Practice Model by the EuropeanMeteorological Society.
      We propose to apply this concept also in other European countries andpresent its advancement into an even broader, pan-European approach. TheEuropean Weather Observer app EWOB, recently released by ESSL, provides anovel and easy-to-handle tool to submit weather and respective impactobservations. We promote its use to provide better data and information fora further real-time improvement of severe weather warnings.

  • Thermal and climatic zoning for construction in the southern part of
           Chile

    • Abstract: Thermal and climatic zoning for construction in the southern part of Chile
      Konstantin Verichev, Alisa Salimova, and Manuel Carpio
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 63-69, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-63-2018, 2018
      This paper presents the results of using two methods of climatic zoning for construction in the southern regions of Chile. Based on the degree-days method, the boundaries of the thermal zones of the Government of Chile, which have not been updated since 1999, have been updated. The relative energy consumption levels of buildings in winter and summer periods for heating and cooling were analyzed in each thermal zone.

  • Short-range solar radiation forecasts over Sweden

    • Abstract: Short-range solar radiation forecasts over Sweden
      Tomas Landelius, Magnus Lindskog, Heiner Körnich, and Sandra Andersson
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 39-44, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-39-2018, 2018
      During recent years the strong decrease in the prices of solar panels has lead to an increasing interest in harvesting solar energy. In this paper solar radiation forecasts from a global and a regional numerical weather prediction model are compared. The result is that regional ensemble models can indeed provide added value compared to global models when it comes to forecasting solar radiation available for power production.

  • Give me five! – reasons for two-way communication between experts and
           citizens in relation to air pollution risk

    • Abstract: Give me five! – reasons for two-way communication between experts and citizens in relation to air pollution risk
      Maria Loroño-Leturiondo, Paul O'Hare, Simon Cook, Stephen R. Hoon, and Sam Illingworth
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 45-50, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-45-2018, 2018
      Globally we are facing both an air quality crisis and a communication emergency. Communication efforts so far have been based on a one-way provision of information from experts to society, and have arguably failed in their mission to foster a more engaged society, or to result in cleaner air. This paper supports the case for moving away from one-way communication, and identifies five benefits of a practical two-way communication between experts and citizens in order to engender positive change.

  • Comparison of several satellite-derived databases of surface solar
           radiation against ground measurement in Morocco

    • Abstract: Comparison of several satellite-derived databases of surface solar radiation against ground measurement in Morocco
      Mathilde Marchand, Abdellatif Ghennioui, Etienne Wey, and Lucien Wald
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 21-29, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-21-2018, 2018
      HelioClim-3v4 (HC3v4), HelioClim-3v5 (HC3v5) and the radiation serviceversion 2 of the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS-Rad) aredatabases that contain hourly values of solar radiation at ground level.These estimated hourly irradiations are compared to coincident measurementsmade at five stations in Morocco. The correlation coefficients betweenmeasurements and estimates are similar for the three databases and around0.97–0.98 for global irradiation. For the direct irradiation, thecorrelation coefficients are around 0.70–0.79 for HC3v4, 0.79–0.84 forHC3v5 and 0.78–0.87 for CAMS-Rad. For global irradiation, the bias relativeto the average of the measurements is small and ranges between −6 and−1 % for HC3v4, −4 and 0 % for HC3v5, and −4 and 7 % forCAMS-Rad; HC3v4 and HC3v5 exhibit a tendency to slightly underestimate theglobal irradiation. The root mean square error (RMSE) ranges between 53(12 %) and 72 Wh m−2 (13 %) for HC3v4, 55 (12 %) and71 Wh m−2 (13 %) for HC3v5, and 59 (11 %) and 97 Wh m−2(21 %) for CAMS-Rad. For the direct irradiation, the relative bias rangesbetween −16 and 21 % for HC3v4, −7 and 22 % for HC3v5, and −18 and7 % for CAMS-Rad. The RMSE ranges between 170 (28 %) and210 Wh m−2 (33 %) for HC3v4, 153 (25 %) and 209 Wh m−2(40 %) for HC3v5, and 159 (26 %) and 244 Wh m−2 (39 %) forCAMS-Rad. HC3v5 captures the temporal and spatial variability of theirradiation field well. The performance is poorer for HC3v4 and CAMS-Radwhich exhibit more variability from site to site. As a whole, the threedatabases are reliable sources on solar radiation in Morocco.

  • Satellite-based trends of solar radiation and cloud parameters in Europe

    • Abstract: Satellite-based trends of solar radiation and cloud parameters in Europe
      Uwe Pfeifroth, Jedrzej S. Bojanowski, Nicolas Clerbaux, Veronica Manara, Arturo Sanchez-Lorenzo, Jörg Trentmann, Jakub P. Walawender, and Rainer Hollmann
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 31-37, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-31-2018, 2018
      Measuring solar radiation and analysing its interaction with clouds are essential for the understanding of the climate system. Trends in EUMETSAT CM SAF satellite-based climate data records of solar radiation and clouds are analysed during 1992–2015 in Europe. More surface solar radiation and less top-of-atmosphere reflected radiation and cloud cover is found. This study indicates that one of the main reasons for the positive trend in surface solar radiation is a decrease in cloud cover.

  • Agrometeorological services for smallholder farmers in West Africa

    • Abstract: Agrometeorological services for smallholder farmers in West Africa
      Vieri Tarchiani, José Camacho, Hamidou Coulibaly, Federica Rossi, and Robert Stefanski
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 15-20, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-15-2018, 2018
      There is a limited knowledge on impacts of Climate Services in Africa. This paper analyses the impacts that agrometeorological services have for smallholder farmers in a typical rainfed staple crop production system of West Africa. The results show that such services enable farmers to mitigate some climatic risks and to optimize the inputs use efficiency. The final outcome is an increase of crop yield and an economic benefit compared to farmers that does not use the services.
