ARL WRF ARW 2km Imagery

Summary

This dataset contains images developed from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Advanced Research Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF ARW) modeling system. The 2km imagery were developed at the 12 UTC time and are available from 27 February 2006 to 30 April 2006. The ARL is currently studying the WRF-ARW to see how well it simulates complex mountain and boundary layer meteorology at horizontal grid spacings down to 1-2 km. The 2006 Terrain-induced Rotor Experiment (T-REX) across the Owens Valley of California has provided an opportunity for ARL to run the WRF-ARW in both near real-time and research modes, and at fine-scale horizontal grid spacings.
