Model Clouds as Seen from Space: Comparison with Geostationary Imagery in the 11-μm Window Channel
Monthly Weather Review
A monitoring of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) model with the Meteosat infrared window channel during December 2000 is presented. The Meteosat images are simulated every 3 h during the 31 days of the month from the model fields, at a resolution of 35 km. The study of both the spatial and the temporal variabilities of the model cloudiness is based on forecasts, from 3 to 48 h, as well as on analyses. Despite a reduced cloud forcing in the model, the variations ofdoi:10.1175/1520-0493(2002)130<0712:mcasfs>2.0.co;2 fatcat:uayztmounnewxd7gssb5krfira
