In Response To: Re: Higher resolution model (Will Murray)
Our motivation for going to some version of WRF for the Rapid Refresh (RR) is twofold. 1) We will within, say, 5 years be running at horizontal resolutions that require a non-hydrostatic model even on the expanded North American RR domain; there is no non-hydrostatic model with a hybrid theta-sigma vertical coordinate sufficiently far along in development to be considered a viable candidate. 2) We wish to capitalize on the large community effort underway to further develop and test the WRF model, including a large number of options for the parameterization of physical processes.
Thanks for your interest.
