Webinar: Impacts of high-resolution Himawari-8 AMVs on TC forecast in HWRF
Tuesday, August 14, 2018. 12:00PM. Webinar: Impacts of high-resolution Himawari-8 AMVs on TC forecast in HWRF. Masahiro Sawada, JMA-EMC. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
To investigate the impact of the assimilation of high spatial and temporal resolution atmospheric motion vectors (AMVs) derived from the full disk scan of the new generation geostationary satellite Himawari-8 on tropical cyclone (TC) forecasts in a western North Pacific basin, forecast experiments for three TCs in 2016 are performed using the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) operational Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting Model (HWRF). Two different data assimilation (DA) configurations (three-dimensional variational DA and ensemble-variational hybrid DA), based on the Grid-point Statistical Interpolation (GSI), are used for the sensitivity experiments.
