Toward dynamic adaptivity: steering the WRF model on the Unidata LEAD test bed
The results of these regional NWP runs are being stored on the test bed, cataloged using THREDDS and distributed via OPeNDAP. We've also generated IDV bundles that allow one to view the most recent regional runs as compared with the most recently received NAM data. This work is intended to enable the LEAD team to work toward developing these and far more sophisticated capabilities within the GRID environment in which it is being developed. This paper will also discuss ongoing work to assimilate real time data for initialization of the WRF forecast.
