RADVOP (RADarVORwärtsoperator -> Radar forward operator)
Simulated device: scanning radars from 3 GHz to 40 GHz
Contact: Ulrich Blahak (email@example.com)
radial wind (m/s), radar reflectivity (dBZ), radar beam heights (m MSL)
Minimum set of physical quantities:
- 3D: T, u, v, w, p, qv, qc, qi, qr, qs, qg …
- However, it depends on the configuration of the radar forward operator, if all or just some of these fields are needed.
Need for a special grid?
- At the moment rectangular rotated lat/lon. Needs 3D interpolation, so adaption work is necessary.
Are parameters given via namelist or have to be coded?
Are there special requirements to the input quantities?
- no, instantaneous fields are required
Documentation: under construction
Models for application: COSMO
Suitable for MESSy?:
Format of input data: Currently simple ASCII, but format can be adapted by the user to whatever he has...
Format of output data: ASCII
Computational costs: generally low to intermediate
