Application of GRIMs to Weather Forecasting and Climate Studies

NOAA EARTH SYSTEM RESEARCH LABORATORY GLOBAL SYSTEMS DIVISION SEMINARPresenter: Song-You Hong, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, Yonsei University, Seoul,Korea

When: Monday, 9 April 2012, 2:00pmWhere: NOAA David Skaggs Research Center - Conference Room 3C404/3C405   

A multiscale oceanic/atmospheric modeling system with unified physics, the Global/Regional Integrated Modeling system (GRIMs), has been created for use in numerical weather prediction, seasonal simulations, and climate researches from global to regional scales. The development and applications of the model system are carried out by the Korean modeling community, taking advantage of both operational and research applications. This talk outlines the history of the GRIMs, its current capabilities, and plans for its future development and applications, providing a summary useful to present and future users. An example of real-time forecasts using the GRIMS for medium-range forecasts will be demonstrated. Application of this model to climate studies will also be presented.
