Web cross-cutting group o Attendance: ~12 o RAQ and AER were represented o ECMWF reported on their current capability to: Publish plots and data Produce verification and diagnostics o Discussion
Plotting o Provided that a finite set of plot templates can be defined, plots could be produced and published by ECMWF. (RAQ and global models?). o Presentation consistency will facilitate comparison.
Data server o Frames for boundary conditions will be available on data server. o RAQ model outputs will also be available o Access control will be required to protect data.
Verification o Verification against analysis can be done quite easily for all models. It will be produced by ECMWF on a routine basis. o Verification against observation will also be needed for RAQ. It would be useful to use a common dataset of observations to verify both RAQ and global models (AER?) to use a common reference. o It was also stated that verification against observations requires significant man-power and this may not come very soon.
Requests o Software from ECMWF Format conversion software: to BUFR, to GRIB, from BUFR Verification software Plotting software o Web services to provide plotting and verification of uploaded fields would be very useful. o RAQ subgroup: BUFR software and documentation access: http://ecmwf.int/products/data/software/bufr.html
