  • Twitter and weather services

    • Abstract: Twitter and weather services
      Santiago Gaztelumendi, Maialen Martija, and Olatz Principe
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 239-243, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-239-2018, 2018
      This work focuses on the analysis of the use of Twitter by different weather services around the world. During the last few years the availability of mobile phones connected to the Internet has become a global reality. Likewise, the use of different social networks has been popularized and extended with different purposes including social communication. In this context most meteorological weather services have been using some of these social tools in order to improve their services for the general public and specific users. Twitter is a social tool that enables users to post messages (tweets) of up to 280 characters (up to 140 before November 2017), supporting a wide variety of communicative practices. Twitter is an opportunity not only to spread messages without intermediaries, but also interact in real time with users. Here we present a study of different aspects related to the use of Twitter in diverse weather services worldwide and their evolution during the year 2016.

  • The Meteo-show in the newspapers

    • Abstract: The Meteo-show in the newspapers
      Iñaki Orbe and Santiago Gaztelumendi
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 245-249, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-245-2018, 2018
      In this work we focus on what may be described as one of the worst journalist practices when dealing with severe weather: the Meteo-Show, considered as the more or less extended informative practice whose main objective is to increase the news impact regardless of the veracity and the exactitude of the weather facts. In this work we analysed such practices on newspapers highlighting different journalist resources used in written press when dealing with weather for attracting attention and promoting impact. The growing public interest in weather causes that journalists often focus on this topic. But as it could happen with other issues, mistakes, inaccuracies, sensationalism and exaggerations have also reached meteorology related written news. This wrongdoing is especially present and dangerous when episodes of adverse nature are treated. In this paper we present some keys to identify Meteo-show in the context of written press. We analysed some examples from real news articles published in different newspapers, in order to understand the motivation of these practices. Finally we present some conclusions and recommendations to deal with this subject.

  • Comparing climate change indices between a northern (arid) and a southern
           (humid) basin in Mexico during the last decades

    • Abstract: Comparing climate change indices between a northern (arid) and a southern (humid) basin in Mexico during the last decades
      Martín José Montero-Martínez, Julio Sergio Santana-Sepúlveda, Naydú Isabel Pérez-Ortiz, Óscar Pita-Díaz, and Salvador Castillo-Liñan
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 231-237, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-231-2018, 2018
      This study provides a comparison between several climate change indices trends of two very different basins in Mexico, one located in the northern arid region (the Conchos River basin) and the other in the southern humid area (the Usumacinta River basin). A clear warming signal was found for the two basins in addition to an increment in the diurnal temperature range, in agreement with other studies in Mexico. Also, the Conchos basin was found to be more humid and the Usumacinta drier.

  • Strategy for generation of climate change projections feeding Spanish
           impact community

    • Abstract: Strategy for generation of climate change projections feeding Spanish impact community
      María Pilar Amblar-Francés, María Asunción Pastor-Saavedra, María Jesús Casado-Calle, Petra Ramos-Calzado, and Ernesto Rodríguez-Camino
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 217-230, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-217-2018, 2018
      The Spanish State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has been producing since 2006 a set of reference downscaled regional climate change projections over Spain. Its strategy aims at exploiting all the available sources of information on climate change projections. In the future this service aims at complementing the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) in terms of resolution, expression of uncertainty, visualization, tailored adjustments and reinforcement of links with national users.

  • An explicit method of mesoscale convective storm prediction for the
           central region of Russia

    • Abstract: An explicit method of mesoscale convective storm prediction for the central region of Russia
      Inna M. Gubenko, Maria M. Kurbatova, and Konstantin G. Rubinstein
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 213-216, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-213-2018, 2018
      This work presents simulation results of the storm observed on the 13–14 July 2016 over the Central region of Russia. The Cumulonimbus cloud (Cb) electrification model coupled with the numerical weather prediction model WRF-ARW were used for this study. The prognostic values of the electric field magnitude were compared with observations. Forecast scores were obtained. The results show that the proposed approach of explicit modelling of the electric field is applicable to short-term forecasting of intense convection and passage tracking of storms. Obtaining varying values of the electric field could help to identify the diversity of hazardous weather phenomena associated with convection.

    • Abstract: Evaluation of radiosonde humidity sensors at low temperature using ultralow-temperature humidity chamber
      Byung Il Choi, Sang-Wook Lee, Sang-Bong Woo, Jong Chul Kim, Yong-Gyoo Kim, and Seung Gu Yang
      Adv. Sci. Res., 15, 207-212, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-15-207-2018, 2018
      Accurate measurements of temperature and water vapor in the upper-air are of great interest in relation to weather prediction and climate change. Those measurements are mostly conducted using radiosondes. The sensitivity characteristic and response time of radiosonde humidity sensors were investigated at low temperature, using developed ultralow-temperature humidity chamber. This work will improve the accuracy and reliability of the upper-air observation data.

  • 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.

      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.

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

    • Abstract: Comparison of radiation parametrizations within the HARMONIE–AROME NWP model
      Laura Rontu and Anders V. Lindfors
      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
      Thomas Krennert, Rainer Kaltenberger, Georg Pistotnik, Alois M. Holzer, Franz Zeiler, and Mathias Stampfl
      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.
