dc.description.abstractThis paper describes the evaluation of the NRL Limited Area Dynamical Weather Prediction Model in simulating coastal atmospheric mesoscale phenomena along the west coast of the United States during the period 0000 UTC 02 May - 1200 UTC 03 May 1990. A graphical comparison technique was used. Model output was compared horizontally with large-scale analyses, station data, cross-section analyses, and vertical profiles at specific locations. The model successfully simulated the wind and temperature fields, but failed to accurately replicate moisture and height fields.en_US
