Session 12A Advanced Physics and Physics Interoperability in Community Models

Thursday, 16 January 2020: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
257AB (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)
Host: 30th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting (WAF)/26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP)
Jessie C. Carman, OAR, OWAQ, Silver Spring, MD and James D. Doyle, NRL, Marine Meteorology Division, Monterey, CA

In this session, we will highlight the latest research on current and next-generation physical parametrization addressing formulation, development and evaluation of parameterization of numerical model physical processes on short-, medium, extended-range and climate time scales.  Additionally, we invite discussion of the design and development of community software tools that enable physics interoperability in an efficient and standardized manner in community models.  We encourage contributions from the National Earth System Prediction Capability (ESPC) and the NOAA Unified Forecast System, as well as other modeling efforts.
