Observations and data assimilation: THORPEX field programs
Harr, Patrick A.
MetadataShow full item record
An objective of THe Observing Research and Prediction EXperiment (THORPEX) was to develop science and implement plans to meet regional forecast needs in Asia, North America, Europe and the Southern Hemisphere. As such, THORPEX regional committees were formed to propose, organize, and implement field projects and forecast demonstration projects related to improving forecasts of high-impact weather specific to each region. Over the THORPEX time period, programs were conducted that spanned from each pole to the tropics. While the geographic settings varied greatly, the objectives of each campaign were consistent with the THORPEX goals of improving prediction from 1 day through 2 weeks for the benefit of society and the economy of each region
