  • Assessing the usability and potential value of seasonal climate forecasts
           in land management decisions in the southwest UK: challenges and
           reflections

    • Abstract: Assessing the usability and potential value of seasonal climate forecasts in land management decisions in the southwest UK: challenges and reflections
      Marta Bruno Soares
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 175-180, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-175-2017, 2017
      This paper reflects on the challenges of using seasonal climate forecasts (SCF) in the farming sector in a region in the UK. The findings from the study point to the need to explore and develop (new) research methods capable of addressing the complexity of the decision-making processes, such as those identified in thefarming sector and beyond. This paper contributes to ongoing discussions about how to assess the value of climate information, such as SCF, in decision-making in a meaningful way.

  • Evaluation of gridding procedures for air temperature over Southern Africa

    • Abstract: Evaluation of gridding procedures for air temperature over Southern Africa
      Kai-Uwe Eiselt, Frank Kaspar, Thomas Mölg, Stefan Krähenmann, Rafael Posada, and Jens O. Riede
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 163-173, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-163-2017, 2017
      As one element of the SASSCAL initiative (a cooperation of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, South Africa and Germany) networks of automatic weather stations have been installed or improved in Southern Africa. Here we compare interpolation methods for monthly minimum and maximum temperatures which were calculated from hourly measurements. The best interpolation results have been achieved combining multiple linear regression with three dimensional inverse distance weighted interpolation.

      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 153-156, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-153-2017, 2017
      In this work we focus on perhaps one of the worst journalist practice whendealing with severe weather, the Meteo-Show or the extended practice,especially in TV, for using weather and meteorology for spectacle. Journalismtoday has found weather information in a real goldmine in terms ofaudience due to the growing public interest in this matter. However, as ithappens with other content, sensationalism and exaggeration have also reachedweather information, primarily when episodes of adverse nature (snow, heavyrain, floods, etc.) are addressed. In this paper we look to identify theworst practices in weather communication through analysis of examples fromreal journalist work. We present some keys to understand this trend,highlighting the ingredients that are present in the worst Meteo-show.

    • Abstract: GPS – Zenith Total Delay assimilation in different resolution simulations of a heavy precipitation event over southern France
      Alberto Caldas-Álvarez, Samiro Khodayar, and Olivier Bock
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 157-162, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-157-2017, 2017
      The representation of the atmospheric moisture distribution in weather and climate prediction models has been identified as a source of error in the representation of heavy precipitation events. This research work shows the relevance of overcoming deficiencies in the representation of the moisture content in the vertical direction, even after assimilating humidity data for a case study characteristic of the western Mediterranean by early autumn.

    • Abstract: Seasonal co-variability of surface downwelling longwave radiation for the 1982–2009 period in the Arctic
      Mauro Boccolari and Flavio Parmiggiani
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 139-143, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-139-2017, 2017
      The paper investigates, for 28 years, the correlation between the longwave radiation to the surface (SDL) and the sea ice concentration (SIC) over the Arctic Ocean. One relevant result is the strong correlations of the SDL/SIC co-variability with some main NH climate oscillations patterns. This study can help to better understand the relationship between atmospheric and cryospheric variables. The paper is based on an intensive use of some climate data sets provided by EUMETSAT and NSIDC.

      Insa Meinke
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 145-151, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-145-2017, 2017
      In this article the comparability of knowledge transfer activities is discussed by accounting for external impacts. It is shown that factors which are neither part of the knowledge transfer activity nor part of the participating institution may have significant impact on the potential usefulness of knowledge transfer activities. The results show that the comparability of knowledge transfer activities is limited and challenge the adequacy of quantitative measures in this context.

  • Weather dependent estimation of continent-wide wind power generation based
           on spatio-temporal clustering

    • Abstract: Weather dependent estimation of continent-wide wind power generation based on spatio-temporal clustering
      Bruno U. Schyska, António Couto, Lueder von Bremen, Ana Estanqueiro, and Detlev Heinemann
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 131-138, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-131-2017, 2017
      Europe is facing the challenge of increasing shares of energy fromvariable renewable sources. Furthermore, it is heading towards a fullyintegrated electricity market, i.e. a Europe-wide electricity system. Thestable operation of this large-scale renewable power system requires detailedinformation on the amount of electricity being transmitted now and in thefuture. To estimate the actual amount of electricity, upscaling algorithmsare applied. Those algorithms – until now – however, only exist for smallerregions (e.g. transmission zones and single wind farms). The aim of thisstudy is to introduce a new approach to estimate Europe-wide wind powergeneration based on spatio-temporal clustering. We furthermore show thattraining the upscaling model for different prevailing weather situationsallows to further reduce the number of reference sites without losingaccuracy.

  • Multimodel probabilistic prediction of 2 m-temperature anomalies on

    • Abstract: Multimodel probabilistic prediction of 2 m-temperature anomalies on the monthly timescale
      Alfonso Ferrone, Daniele Mastrangelo, and Piero Malguzzi
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 123-129, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-123-2017, 2017
      The ensemble reforecasts of the CNR-ISAC and ECMWF forecasting systems, both participating to the S2S project, have been combined in a multimodel ensemble. Tercile probability predictions of wintertime 2 m temperature produced through logistic regression outperform the probability estimation based on the direct count of ensemble members, in terms of RPSS and reliability diagrams. Also, it is argued that the logistic regression would not yield further improvements if a larger dataset were used.

    • Abstract: Subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) forecasts with CNRM-CM: a case study on the July 2015 West-European heat wave
      Constantin Ardilouze, Lauriane Batté, and Michel Déqué
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 115-121, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-115-2017, 2017
      Was the July 2015 heat wave that struck Western Europe predictable more than 10 days ahead and to what extent? This article addresses the question by assessing forecasts from the CNRM-CM sub-seasonal forecast system. It is found that a warm anomaly was anticipated up to one month ahead despite the limited skill of the forecast system at such lead-time. The possible causes for this relative success are then discussed.

Since 2011 every year more than 1200 students come to visit LaMMA to follow one of the proposed modules. Students have also the opportunity to visit the LaMMA weather operations room and meet the forecasters. Furthermore, an educational module on climate change based on a participatory approach was proposed to more than 500 teachers in the last two years.

      Exact description of cloud microphysical processes is essential for providing accurate weather forecasts. The paper evaluates errors of different methods to account for variability of cloud microphysical parameters, such as cloud water. rain water, and cloud drop concentration. It is found that neglecting cloud variability results in a substantial underestimate of rain development in the short run. Nevertheless the total effect on rain development in the long run may be uncertain due to the fac

  • Ensemble using different Planetary Boundary Layer schemes in WRF model for
           wind speed and direction prediction over Apulia region

    • Abstract: Ensemble using different Planetary Boundary Layer schemes in WRF model for wind speed and direction prediction over Apulia region
      Andrea Tateo, Mario Marcello Miglietta, Francesca Fedele, Micaela Menegotto, Alfonso Monaco, and Roberto Bellotti
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 95-102, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-95-2017, 2017
      The Weather Research and Forecasting mesoscale model(WRF) was used to simulate hourly 10 m wind speed and direction over the cityof Taranto, Apulia region (south-eastern Italy). This area is characterizedby a large industrial complex including the largest European steel plant andis subject to a Regional Air Quality Recovery Plan. This plan constrainsindustries in the area to reduce by 10 % the mean daily emissionsby diffuse and point sources during specific meteorological conditions namedwind days. According to the Recovery Plan, the Regional Environmental AgencyARPA-PUGLIA is responsible for forecasting these specific meteorologicalconditions with 72 h in advance and possibly issue the earlywarning.
      In particular, an accurate wind simulation is required. Unfortunately,numerical weather prediction models suffer from errors, especially for whatconcerns near-surface fields. These errors depend primarily on uncertaintiesin the initial and boundary conditions provided by global models andsecondly on the model formulation, in particular the physicalparametrizations used to represent processes such as turbulence, radiationexchange, cumulus and microphysics. In our work, we tried to compensate forthe latter limitation by using different Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL)parameterization schemes. Five combinations of PBL and Surface Layer (SL)schemes were considered.
      Simulations are implemented in a real-time configuration since our intentionis to analyze the same configuration implemented by ARPA-PUGLIA foroperational runs; the validation is focused over a time range extending from49 to 72 h with hourly time resolution. The assessment of theperformance was computed by comparing the WRF model output with ground datameasured at a weather monitoring station in Taranto, near the steel plant.After the analysis of the simulations performed with different PBL schemes,both simple (e.g. average) and more complex post-processing methods (e.g.weighted average, linear and nonlinear regression, and artificial neuralnetwork) are adopted to improve the performances with respect to the outputof each single setup. The neural network approach comes out as the mostpromising method.

      Finnish Meteorological Institute and Helen Ltd examined the feasibility of long-range forecasts (longer than two weeks) of temperature for needs of the energy sector in Helsinki, Finland. In this study, we examined the quality of Heating degree day (HDD) forecasts. As the forecasts we used UK Met Office seasonal forecasts. The long-range forecasts of monthly HDD showed some skill in Helsinki in winter 2015–2016, up to two months, especially if the very cold January is excluded.

      The probabilistic evaluation of 2 m temperature forecast of about one year of monthly ensemble forecasts, issued on a monthly basis, is provided. The ranked probability skill score, averaged over all the available cases, shows that the system has a residual predictive skill beyond week 2 on some peculiar regions. Reliability diagrams show that, in general, the probability forecasts of above-normal observed temperature are more reliable than below-normal temperature.

  • Sensitivity of sea-level forecasting to the horizontal resolution and sea
           surface forcing for different configurations of an oceanographic model of
           the Adriatic Sea

    • Abstract: Sensitivity of sea-level forecasting to the horizontal resolution and sea surface forcing for different configurations of an oceanographic model of the Adriatic Sea

      This study presents the sensitivity of an oceanic model of the Adriatic Sea to the horizontal resolution and to the meteorological forcing. The model is run with two different configurations and with two horizontal grids at 1 and 2 km resolution. To study the influence of the meteorological forcing, the two storms have been reproduced by running ROMS in ensemble mode. Possible optimizations of the model set-up are deduced by the comparison of the different run outputs.

  • Atmospheric circulation types and extreme areal precipitation in southern
           central Europe

    • Abstract: Atmospheric circulation types and extreme areal precipitation in southern central Europe
      Jucundus Jacobeit, Markus Homann, Andreas Philipp, and Christoph Beck
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 71-75, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-71-2017, 2017
      Monthly frequencies of circulation types (derived by clustering fields of SLP, vertical wind and rel. humidity at 700 hPa and regional rainfall series) are used as predictors in regression models for monthly frequencies of regional precipitation extremes (> 95 % percentile). With predictor output from global climate models, changes in regional precipitation extremes for 2021–2050 and 2071–2100 are assessed, most distinctive in summer: increasing/decreasing extremes for the earlier/later period.

  • Italian codified hashtags for weather warning on Twitter – who is
           really using them?

    • Abstract: Italian codified hashtags for weather warning on Twitter – who is really using them?
      Valentina Grasso, Alfonso Crisci, Marco Morabito, Paolo Nesi, Gianni Pantaleo, Imad Zaza, and Bernardo Gozzini
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 63-69, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-63-2017, 2017
      Twitter has proved to be an important source of information during emergencies. In Twitter hashtags are used by users to improve information retrieval and coordinate conversations. A set of 20 hashtags to be used during weather warnings was proposed in Italy in 2014. This study presents a one-year monitoring of the Italian codified hashtags. Different regional contexts are presented and main findings are discussed. Institutions have a crucial role in the stable adoption of a codified hashtag.

  • Do modelled or satellite-based estimates of surface solar irradiance
           accurately describe its temporal variability?

    • Abstract: Do modelled or satellite-based estimates of surface solar irradiance accurately describe its temporal variability?
      Marc Bengulescu, Philippe Blanc, Alexandre Boilley, and Lucien Wald
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 35-48, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-35-2017, 2017
      This study investigates the characteristic time-scales of variability found in long-term time-series of daily means of surface solar irradiance (SSI). Estimates of SSI from satellite-derived HelioClim-3 and radiation products from ERA-Interim and MERRA-2 re-analyses are compared to WRDC measurements. It is found that HelioClim-3 renders a more accurate picture of the variability found in ground measurements, not only globally, but also with respect to individual characteristic time-scales.

  • NAO and extreme ocean states in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean

    • Abstract: NAO and extreme ocean states in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean
      Emily Gleeson, Sarah Gallagher, Colm Clancy, and Frédéric Dias
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 23-33, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-23-2017, 2017
      Large scale atmospheric oscillations, such as the North Atlantic Oscillation are known to have an influence on waves in the North Atlantic. This study investigated the influence of the NAO on the present and future wind and wave climate in the Northeast Atlantic near Ireland.
