  • Seasonal range test run with Global Eta Framework

    • Abstract: Seasonal range test run with Global Eta Framework
      Dragan Latinović, Sin Chan Chou, and Miodrag Rančić
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 247-251, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-247-2017, 2017
      Global Eta Framework (GEF) is run on a cubed-sphere grid topology. A nonhydrostatic version of this atmospheric model is under development at CPTEC, SP, Brazil. This note describes preliminary tests with the GEF in which model performance is evaluated in seasonal simulations at a horizontal resolution of 25 km, running in the hydrostatic mode. Comparison of these simulations with the ERA-Interim reanalyses shows the model is able to well capture the main seasonal climate characteristics.

  • Communicating climate change adaptation information using web-based
           platforms

    • Abstract: Communicating climate change adaptation information using web-based platforms
      Eleni Karali and Kati Mattern
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 241-245, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-241-2017, 2017
      To facilitate progress in adaptation policy and practice, it is important not only to ensure the production of accurate, comprehensive and relevant information, but also the easy, timely and affordable access to it. Web-based platforms can play an important role in the relevant efforts, providing a cost-effective and efficient way to reach out to a wide audience. Despite the progress that has been achieved in this area in recent years, certain challenges remain and need to be further explored.

  • Intense sea-effect snowfall case on the western coast of Finland

    • Abstract: Intense sea-effect snowfall case on the western coast of Finland
      Taru Olsson, Tuuli Perttula, Kirsti Jylhä, and Anna Luomaranta
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 231-239, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-231-2017, 2017
      A new national daily snowfall record was measured in Finland in January 2016 when it snowed 73 cm in less than a day at a small town on the western coast of Finland. The area of the most intense snowfall was very small, which is common in convective precipitation. In this work we used hourly weather radar images to identify the sea-effect snowfall case and found that a weather prediction model worked quite well in simulating the snowbands.

  • Public crowdsensing of heat waves by social media data

    • Abstract: Public crowdsensing of heat waves by social media data
      Valentina Grasso, Alfonso Crisci, Marco Morabito, Paolo Nesi, and Gianni Pantaleo
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 217-226, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-217-2017, 2017
      This work presents an analysis of tweets related to heat waves occurred in Italy in summer 2015. Social media offer new opportunities to indirectly measure the impact of heat waves on society. Tweets related to heat conditions were retrieved and analysed for main features. The daily volume of users and messages was a valuable indicator of heat wave impact in urban areas. The volume of tweets in certain locations was used to estimate thresholds of local discomfort conditions.

  • Wind power application research on the fusion of the determination and
           ensemble prediction

    • Abstract: Wind power application research on the fusion of the determination and ensemble prediction
      Shi Lan, Xu Lina, and Hao Yuzhu
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 227-230, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-227-2017, 2017
      The fused product of wind speed for the wind farm is designed through using wind speed products of ensemble prediction from European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts and professional numerical model products on wind power based on Mesoscale Model5 and Beijing Rapid Update Cycle, which is suitable for short-term wind power forecasting and electric dispatch. The result shows that the fusion forecast has made obvious improvement on the accuracy relative to the numerical forecasting.

  • The HIRLAM fast radiation scheme for mesoscale numerical weather
           prediction models

    • Abstract: The HIRLAM fast radiation scheme for mesoscale numerical weather prediction models
      Laura Rontu, Emily Gleeson, Petri Räisänen, Kristian Pagh Nielsen, Hannu Savijärvi, and Bent Hansen Sass
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 195-215, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-195-2017, 2017
      This paper provides an overview of the HLRADIA shortwave (SW) and longwave (LW) broadband radiation schemes used in the HIRLAM numerical weather prediction (NWP) model and available in the HARMONIE-AROME mesoscale NWP model. The advantage of broadband, over spectral, schemes is that they can be called more frequently within the NWP model, without compromising on computational efficiency. Fast physically based radiation parametrizations are also valuable for high-resolution ensemble forecasting.

  • Impact of the assimilation of lightning data on the precipitation forecast
           at different forecast ranges

    • Abstract: Impact of the assimilation of lightning data on the precipitation forecast at different forecast ranges
      Stefano Federico, Marco Petracca, Giulia Panegrossi, Claudio Transerici, and Stefano Dietrich
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 187-194, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-187-2017, 2017
      This study investigates the impact of using lightning data on the precipitation forecast at different forecast ranges (3–24 h). Twenty case studies, occurred over Italy in fall 2012, are selected to show the impact. Results show the important and positive impact of using lightning data to improve the precipitation forecast. The time range, however, is very important because the performance decreases steadily and substantially with forecasting time.

  • Validation of gas phase chemistry in the WRF-Chem model over Europe

    • Abstract: Validation of gas phase chemistry in the WRF-Chem model over Europe
      Jan Karlický, Peter Huszár, and Tomáš Halenka
      Adv. Sci. Res., 14, 181-186, https://doi.org/10.5194/asr-14-181-2017, 2017
      The article describes ability of the numerical atmospheric model WRF-Chem to predict concentrations of main gas pollutants over Europe. Model experiments showed that daily and annual cycles of ozone are well captured, but the model concentrations of nitride dioxide and sulfur dioxide are significantly lower than measured values. The differences between two chemical modules are significant in term of ozone daily cycle, not in the total amount of nitride and sulfur dioxide.

  • 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.

  • Severe weather as a spectacle: the Meteo-Show

    • Abstract: Severe weather as a spectacle: the Meteo-Show
      Iñaki Orbe and Santiago Gaztelumendi
      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.

  • GPS – Zenith Total Delay assimilation in different resolution
           simulations of a heavy precipitation event over southern France

    • 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.

  • Seasonal co-variability of surface downwelling longwave radiation for the
           1982–2009 period in the Arctic

    • 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.

    • Abstract: On the comparability of knowledge transfer activities – a case study at the German Baltic Sea Coast focusing regional climate services
      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.

      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.

      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.

      This paper presents the educational activities on meteorology carried out by LaMMA Consortium, official weather service for Tuscany. 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.

  • LES study of microphysical variability bias in shallow cumulus

    • Abstract: LES study of microphysical variability bias in shallow cumulus

      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

      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.
