Workshop on Modelling and Assimilation for the Stratosphere and Troposphere

The ECMWF/SPARC Workshop on Modelling and Assimilation for the Stratosphere and Troposphere was held at ECMWF from 23 to 26 June 2003.

Description

The ECMWF model has a top level at 0.1 hPa with about 25 levels above the tropopause. It is planned to increase the vertical resolution particularly in the vicinity of the tropopause and a workshop on stratospheric modelling and assimilation is proposed to review recent studies and plans for the future.

General issues to be discussed at the workshop included the diagnosis and improvement of analyses and forecasts and associated transports, and the impact of vertical resolution and of the upper boundary condition. Studies of the assimilation of new data from recent satellites, the potential of future satellites, and the assimilation and monitoring of H2O, O3, CO2, CH4, N2O and aerosols will also be reviewed.
