Session 11B Numerical Modeling for Recent Field Campaigns and Testbeds

Thursday, 16 January 2020: 8:30 AM-9:30 AM
258B (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)
Host: 30th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting (WAF)/26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP)
Aaron J. Hill, Colorado State University, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, Fort Collins, CO

This session will be hosted by the 26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (30NWP). We welcome abstracts on numerical modeling used to support recent field campaigns and testbeds, as well as advances in numerical modeling pursuant to recent campaigns and testbeds. Examples of recent campaigns and testbeds include (but are not limited to) VORTEX-SE, RELAMPAGO, TORUS, PISTON, the WPC Hydrometeorological Testbed, WPC Winter Weather Experiment, WPC Flash Flood and Intense Rainfall Experiment (FFaiR), NOAA Spring Forecasting Experiment, etc.

8:30 AM
