1 The COSMO-LEPS suite @ ECMWF since June 2004 d-1 d d+5 d+1d+2 d+4d+3 middle EPS youngest EPS clustering period 00 12 Cluster Analysis and RM identification 4 variables Z U V Q 3 levels 500 700 850 hPa 2 time steps Cluster Analysis and RM identification European area Complete Linkage COSMO- LEPS Integratio n Domain 10 Representative Members driving the 10 Lokal Modell integrations (weighted according to the cluster populations) employing either Tiedtke or Kain-Fristch convection scheme (randomly choosen) COSMO- LEPS clusterin g area suite running every day at ECMWF managed by ARPA-SIM; Δx ~ 10 km; 32 ML; fc length: 120h; Computer time provided by the COSMO partners.
3 COSMO-LEPS suite as time-critical application at ECMWF MARS archiving of COSMO-LEPS products 3-hourly boundary conditions Participation to EURORISK-PREVIEW project: integration domain will be enlarged to include Northern Europe; clustering on different areas will be tested. Participation to MAP D-PHASE project: further downscaling (around 2 km hor. res.) on specific areas where severe events are likely to occur Coupling with hydrologic models Focus on verification. Current activities & future plans
