© Crown copyright Met Office Transpose-AMIP: testing climate models in NWP mode Core experiment is to run 64 hindcasts, each 5 days long, initialised from ECMWF YOTC analysis. Optional experiment to repeat the same set of hindcasts with NASA MERRA re-analysis or own analysis. The hindcasts spread through the annual and diurnal cycles and chosen to tie in with YOTC and coincide with some of the IOPs in: VOCALS (SE Pacific stratocumulus) AMY (Asian monsoon) T-PARC (mid-latitude Pacific)

© Crown copyright Met Office Grey zone project
© Crown copyright Met Office How to parametrize physical processes in the grey-zone (1-10km)? Of interest to Operational mesoscale NWP Many already running at resolutions of a few km but room for more systematic testing to complement existing assessments of parametrization choices? Future global models What to do as global models enter this range? Regional climate models
© Crown copyright Met Office Proposed case: cold-air outbreak Designed to be relevant to and to engage as broad a range of communities as possible Mesoscale modellers Global modellers LES/CRM/parametrization development community (GCSS) Case to be run across whole range of resolutions (from convection resolved to fully parametrized) Back diagnose fluxes at different resolutions from high resolution truth Idealized case with periodic boundary conditions Parallel inflow-outflow option for mesoscale models for which the above is difficult

Workshops, publications, meetings
© Crown copyright Met Office WGNE-THORPEX PDP Joint expert meeting on Diagnosis of Forecast Errors held in Zurich, July 2010 State of the art models still suffer from substantial errors Diagnostic work (+dynamical expertize) has potential to inform developers at process level to guide development Future activities on application of diagnostic techniques to monsoon problems and cyclonic systems ECMWF/Met Office working together on monsoon and planning to extend invitation, through WGNE, for input from other centres when work sufficiently mature WGNE/PDP/ECMWF workshop on model error, June 2011 Need more fundamental research into stochastic physics and linking of that community to WGNE/GASS projects (e.g. grey zone)
© Crown copyright Met Office Other forthcoming meetings Physics of weather/climate models (JPL, Spring 2012) With WWRP, WCRP partners Ocean coupling (Washington, Autumn 2012) Joint workshop with GODAE/OceanView to look at current knowledge of pros/cons of ocean coupling for NWP. Also use of short range coupled model errors to understand longer-range ones Annual WGNE meeting (Toulouse, Autumn 2012) WGNE systematic errors meeting (Exeter, Spring 2013) Annual WGNE meeting (Melbourne, Autumn 2013) Aerosols for NWP?

© Crown copyright Met Office Summary WGNE hosts a wide range of activities in support of model evaluation and development. Enhanced collaboration with WWRP/THORPEX. Meso-scale group, THORPEX PDP and DAOS, YOTC, JWGV,... Enhanced links within WCRP (SPARC, WGCM, WGSIP) Model and DA development remains at the heart of better forecasts at all ranges and needs to remain a high priority!
