  • Description:
    "Heights and temperatures must be vertically interpolated since they are not observed, reported, analyzed, forecasted, and verified all at the same pressures. Since the accuracy of the interpolation can affect the overall skill of the analysis/forecast system it is good to have some well-defined principles and procedures in hand to perform the interpolation. It is taken as a basic tenet that consistency is important in all procedures used. This note will deal with both the basic principles underlying the proposed vertical interpolation method and the derivation of a concrete set of accurate procedures. The problem consists in going from mandatory (and possibly significant) level data to a model vertical coordinate and back with minimum error. The fact that a forecast has been performed by the model in the interum is irrelevant"--Introduction.
