1 Benefits of the full ECMWF product set at a commercial weather provider [dr. Wim van den Berg, meteorological research department] ECMWF Users Meeting June 15, 2006

2 ECMWF Users Meeting Overview Summary of current use of ECMWF Model data Fields from the Deterministic and other Models Applications of the Deterministic and other Models Applications of data from MARS archive Recommendations

3 ECMWF Users Meeting Summary of current use of ECMWF Model data Changes in use of ECMWF fields since maximum license fee n worldwide original gaussian fields n 00 and 12 utc runs (MOS12 and MOS00) n early delivery system (MOS12 in evening) n high resolution and 3h fields ( ) Current flow and use of ECMWF data: n GB/day n processed and interpolated - near real time except for EPS - to a resolution of (0,25-)0,4-0,5-1,0(-1,5) degrees depending on customer and application needs ECMWF model data is seen as our basic (most reliable) forecasting tool, but for comparison and multimodel approach we also use UKMO-GFS- HiRLAM data. ECMWF model data is seen as our basic (most reliable) forecasting tool, but for comparison and multimodel approach we also use UKMO-GFS- HiRLAM data. n ECMWF model data and its derived products are used throughout the Meteo Consult Group (Netherlands, UK, Germany, Belgium and other).
