Exploring the characteristics of a vehicle-based temperature dataset for convection-permitting numerical weather prediction [article]

Zackary Bell, Sarah L Dance, Joanne A Waller
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Despite the low precision of the data, vehicle-based observations of air temperature could be a useful source of spatially-dense and temporally-frequent observations for NWP.  ...  It is shown that, for some observations, location metadata may be inaccurate due to unsuitable smartphone application settings.  ...  We thank Diego de Pablos for his work on vehicle-based observations obtained from a previous Met Office trial which provided a useful starting point for our work.  ...
