Operational Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) Output from the UK Variable (UKV) Resolution Part of the Met Office Unified Model (UM)

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published

Abstract

Data from the operational NWP (Numerical Weather Prediction) output from the Variable resolution UK (UKV) part of the Met Office Unified Model. This latest configuration of the UM model has a high resolution inner domain (1.5 km grid boxes) over the area of forecast interest, separated from a coarser grid (4 km) near the boundaries by a variable resolution transition zone. This variable resolution approach allows the boundaries to be moved further away from the region of interest, reducing unwanted boundary effects on the forecasts. The UKV model is kept close to observations using 3D-Var data assimilation every 3 hours. This archive is currently being populated at the BADC.
