Workshop: Radiation in the next generation of weather forecast models

ECMWF | Reading | 21 - 24 May 2018

This workshop will bring together experts to discuss and propose ways forward in modelling radiative transfer in current and future numerical weather prediction models (1-50 km resolution, forecast lead times from 1 day to 1 year). Topics will include representing complex terrain (e.g. orography, urban areas and forests), faster and more accurate solvers, 3D radiative transfer, improving representation of the properties of clouds, aerosols and gases, observational evaluation of radiation schemes and radiation products, and pathways by which better treatment of radiative processes can improve predictive skill. The discussions at the workshop will provide guidance to ECMWF on the priorities for radiation developments in the coming decade.


The draft programme is now available.

Please be aware that ECMWF is closed on 25 and 28 May.
