Sources of uncertainty for convective-scale predictability

Forecasting convective precipitation remains one of the key challenges in weather forecasting. The predictability of convective precipitation depends on many factors including uncertainties in the synoptic-scale flow, inaccuracies in the state and description of the atmosphere as well as of the underlying surface, and (...)

Stochastic Parameterization of Processes Leading to Convective Initiation in Kilometer-Scale Models

Predicting convective precipitation (e.g. typical summer thunderstorms) with numerical weather prediction models is limited by their ability to initiate convection. For this initiation small-scale processes in the atmospheric boundary layer are particularly important. (More...)

Predictability of Deep Convection
In this publication, we investigate the predictability of convection with the quasi-operational high-resolution ensemble weather forecasting system COSMO-KENDA in both idealized and real world scenarios. (More...)

Thermal 3D radiative transfer for non-rectangular model grids

Radiation drives weather and climate of our planet. Due to the high computational cost, radiative transfer is treated poorly in most atmospheric models. More...
