    • This module has been retired and is no longer available on MetEd.

At the end of this Webcast, you will be able to • Describe the WRF concept and how it differs from other NWP model implementations • Describe how GSI improves the analysis • Define and describe the use of anisotropic background error covariances • State differences between the vertical coordinate systems in Eta and NMM and how they affect the forecast • Anticipate nonhydrostatic effects on model forecasts • Describe several new WRF output variables, including precipitation type and simulated radar reflectivity
