    Author : Filip Olsson; [2019-10-25]
    Keywords : spatial heterogeneity; cycling; weather; local climate zones; explorative GIS;

    Abstract : Background: In the past decade, the phenomenon of spatial heterogeneity has started to gaintraction in studies of cycling and weather. Cycling is usually the mode of transportation that ismost affected by inclement weather and the scientific consensus about how weather impactscycling behaviour on a general scale is for the most part well-established.

  4. 4. Improving Short-Range Cloud Forecasts in Harmonie-Arome Through Cloud Initialization Using Mesan Cloud Data

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten och landskapslära

    Author : Joakim Pyykkö; [2019]
    Keywords : cloud initialization; HARMONIE-AROME; MESAN; satellite product; synoptic weather station;

    Abstract : Previous studies, such as van der Veen (2012) and White et al. (2017), have demonstrated the potential of using measurement-based cloud data to improve Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) based cloud forecasts. This can be done through cloud initialization; a process of injecting cloud data after the regular data assimilation in an NWP model. READ MORE

  5. 5. Implementation of a Block Krylov Algorithm in Variational Data Assimilation

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Clémentine Gas; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Numerical weather prediction relies on two major components: sophisticated atmospheric forecast models and equally important data assimilation algorithms. Data assimilation (DA) is the process used to produce the best estimate of the state of a model, using an Earth system numerical model and observations. READ MORE
