Simulated device: SEVIRI on MSG (other instruments would be possible): Visible and Near-Infrared Satellite Reflectances
Contact: Leonhard Scheck (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Minimum set of physical quantities:
Need for a special grid?
Are parameters given via namelist or have to be coded?
Are there special requirements to the input quantities?
Models for application: COSMO (+ preliminary tests with UCLA-LES, ICON-LES)
Suitable for MESSy?: Column-based: should become available in the next months
Format of input data: NetCDF or grib
Format of output data: NetCDF
Computational costs: The pure computing time is less than a CPU minute for a COSMO-DE scene using the look-up table based version with parallax correction. Future version will take further 3D effects into account (e.g. cloud shadows) and will presumably be several times slower.
