The computational domain of Aladin model and the associated orography. The two color frames encompass the dissemination domains of CHMI.

Main aims of WP10

  • Deliver the necessary atmospheric surface fields to the WP8 and WP9 ocean modelling community.
  • Study the atmospheric response to sea state conditions and especially to SST spatio-temporal variability in the Mediterranean Sea
  • Explore the role of the sea surface fluxes in the formation and evolution of characteristic weather regimes.
  • Examine the potential benefits of highly resolved non-hydrostatic atmospheric flows in regional/shelf ocean modelling.
  • Define the experimental strategy for the Scientific Validation Period (SVP) inter-comparison exercise.
  • Validate the various model results produced during the SVP-WP10 and other related hindcasting operations against observations from various sources.
