7. DATASET OVERVIEW

7.1 Abstract

Ten operational Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and two data assimilation centers are currently contributing analysis/assimilation and forecast model products from global and regional NWP suites, including both operational and reanalysis systems to this component of CEOP. The contributing centers include:

BoM: Bureau of Meteorology

CPTEC: Centro de Previsao de Tempo e Estudos Climaticos

ECMWF: European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts

ECPC: Experimental Climate Prediction Center

EMC: EPSON Meteo Center (Centro EPSON Meteo)

GLDAS: Global Land Data Assimilation System

GMAO: NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office

JMA: Japan Meteorological Agency

MSC: Meteorological Service Canada

NCEP: National Centers for Environmental Prediction

NCMRWF: National Center for Medium Range Weather Forecasting

UKMO: UK Met Office

The Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPIM) in coordination with the ICSU World Data Center for Climate (WDCC) in Hamburg, Germany was designated as the CEOP model output archive center. The WDCC is administered by the Model and Data Group (M&D) at MPIM and the German Climate Computing Center (DKRZ).

To assist with the organization of this activity during the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period ('CEOP'), a Model Output Management Document was drafted as a guide for the participating centers to use in setting up their processes for meeting their commitments to 'CEOP'. The Guidance Document addressed the two issues of (1) the model output variables requested by 'CEOP' and (2) the two types of requested model output, namely global gridded (in GRIB format) and site-specific Model Output Location Time Series (MOLTS) at each of the 'CEOP' Reference Sites.

A new version of the Guidance Document will be compiled that clarifies what model output data will be generated by the NWP Centers and Groups contributing to the model output component of Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project (CEOP) and how they will interface/transfer the data that will be handled and retained at the WDCC. The issues covered in the document will include: (1) global versus regional products; (2) desired assimilation output; Interval and length of free-running forecasts; (3) Operational versus reanalysis data; (4) the CEOP schedule/archive periods; (5) the number and locations of MOLTS sites; and (6) the homogenizing of the model output and metadata formats (i.e. standard parameters).

Results up to this point in the CEOP model output generation effort make it clear that the transfer aspect of the data handling effort has been progressing well. Data from all twelve Centers participating in CEOP have been received at the data archive center and has either been placed into the database at the Hamburg facility, or is in the process of being entered into the database. The current data holdings in the MPIM archive can be viewed http://www.mad.zmaw.de/fileadmin/extern/wdc/ceop/Data_timeline_L_12.pdf.
