Two papers on the RUC have been fully accepted for publication in Monthly Weather Review, to appear in an issue in a few to several months.
There are PDF versions of these papers now available online:
1) An hourly assimilation/forecast cycle: The RUC. Available at http://ruc.fsl.noaa.gov/pdf/MWR-RUC-1hcyc-Sept03-final.pdf.
2) Mesoscale weather prediction with the RUC hybrid isentropic / terrain-following coordinate model. Available at http://ruc.fsl.noaa.gov/pdf/MWR-RUC-model-Sept03-final.pdf.
The first of these papers deals more with the assimilation aspects of the RUC and includes various kinds of statistical verification results from real-time runs. The second paper concerns a full description of the RUC model and focuses on the effect of its use of a quasi-isentropic vertical coordinate.
