IHOP_2002: NCAR Mesoscale Model (MM5)


The NCAR/Penn. State University (PSU) mesoscale model MM5 Version 3 was run by NCAR for the IHOP project. A 15 hour forecast was made using dynamic initialization period of 4 hours. The model was forced with output data from the operational forecasts from AWIP3D Eta 12 km model. Two levels of nesting were used to produce a high resolution (1.333 km) simulation centered on on the Oklahoma panhandle region where the ATD S-Pol and ISS systems are based. The products are usually available about 2230Z.
