    Presentation Transcript
    1. TIGGE Data Archive and Access at NCAR November 2008 Steven Worley National Center for Atmospheric Research Boulder, Colorado, U.S.A.

    2. Topic Outline • Project Definition • Archive Summary • Data Description • Provider Summary • NCAR’s portal and access

    3. Project Outline TIGGE, the THe Observing System Research and Predictability EXperiment (THORPEX) Interactive Grand Global Ensemble • WMO World Weather Research Programme • Goal, accelerate improvements in 1-day to 14-day high-impact weather forecasts • How • Enhanced international collaboration on ensemble prediction • New methods for combining ensembles from different sources • Deeper understanding of forecast errors • Purpose • Prototype for a future Global Interactive Forecast System (GIFS)

    4. Phase I Archive Centers Archive Centers • NCAR • ECMWF • China Meteorological Administration (CMA) Archive Centers build identical archives, i.e. all the data.

    5. TIGGE Archive Centers and Data Providers UKMO CMC CMA ECMWF MeteoFrance NCAR NCEP JMA KMA IDD/LDM HTTP FTP Archive Centre CPTEC Current Data Provider BoM IDD/LDM Internet Data Distribution / Local Data Manager Commodity internet application to send and receive data

    6. Brief Data Description • Global Ensemble Forecasts • Five parameters on eight pressure levels • Z, Q, T, U, V • 1000, 925, 850, 700, 500, 300, 250, 200 hPa • Z at 50 hPa • Potential Vorticity on 320 K Potential Temperature Surface (θ) • θ, U, V on  2 potential vorticity surface • 28 Surface/Single level parameters

    7. Summary of Data Providers, March ‘08

    8. TIGGE Archive Completeness, 02/2008 PL = Pressure Level, PT = 320K Theta Level, SL = Single/Surface Level

    9. TIGGE Archive Completeness, 02/2008 PL = Pressure Level, PT = 320K Theta Level, SL = Single/Surface Level

    10. The Data Management Challenges Anomalies between centers • Native horizontal resolution • Number of ensemble members • Number of forecast initialization times (1, 2, 4x daily) • Forecast increment time period • Forecast length • Number of fields provided • Internal file compression (e.g. jpg) was not specified Influence on Research • User interface must inform users - commonalities constrain research

    11. NCAR TIGGE Portal Address: http://tigge.ucar.edu Main Features • Registration and Login • Get Data • User Tools • Documentation and Linkages • Technical and Community Supported Help

    12. Dates Center File Type Forecast Time Forecast Duration

    13. Get Forecast Data Two User Interfaces • NCAR online file archive • Selection options • Center(s) • Date • File type (sl, pl, etc) • Initialization time • Forecast length • User customized files • Selection options • Same as for files, plus • Parameter • Regridding • Spatial subsets • Formats, GRIB2, netCDF Real Time Delayed Mode • Download Options • Point and click using browser, one file at a time • Script to run on local machine • User and password encrypted ‘wget’ commands • background process to access all files

    14. Tropical Cyclone Track Data • Direct Download Only, <CXML> format • Simple directory system, center/year/month • Web address, dss.ucar.edu/datasets/ds330.3 • Update Frequency • 12 hours • Size • 6GB

    15. Public Announcement • EOS, Transactions, American Geophysical Union, Vol. 89, Number 36, September 2, 2008 • Title: Improving High-Impact Weather Forecasts • Included an online supplement
