29th EWGLAM meeting

8th of October 2007

preoperational chain cosmo
Preoperational chain COSMO

COSMO-7 at 6.6km resolution

COSMO-2 at 2.2km resolution

Mesh sizes: 3/50° ~ 6.6km 1/50° ~ 2.2kmMaximum height 3122m 3950mDomains: 393x338x60 = 7'970'040 GP 520x350x60 = 10’920’000 GPBoundary conditions every 3h from IFS/ECMWF hourly from COSMO-7

Forecasts 2 x 72h forecasts per day 8 x 24h forecasts per day (every 3h)

Initial conditions nudging to observations same, use of radar (latent heat nudging)

Pre-operationalnow(operational beginning of 2008)

390 Gflops sustained (816 processors; 9% of peak) on CrayXT4 at CSCS, Manno

fuzzy verification for high resolution precipitation



Fuzzy verification for high resolution precipitation

Fuzzy scores provide a wealth of information,


  • the results seems to be contrasting
  • their interpretation is sometimes difficult
  • contain too many numbers

Realizations of virtual erroneousmodel forecasts


Realizations ofverification results

  • Assessment of
  • sensitivity (mean)
  • [reliability (STD)]
  • Two ingredients:
  • Reference fields, e.g. radar derived rain fields,
  • Perturbations:


Evaluation of the scores
