  • Description:
    A description of major areas of research of the Development Division of the National Meteorological Center (NMC) is presented. The numerical modeling program is pointed in two main directions. One is in the area of regional modeling for short-range prediction, which includes efforts in hurricane modeling, planetary boundary layer modeling, and limited-area fine-mesh modeling in general. The other is in the area of global or hemispheric modeling for extended-range predictions which, in the case for NMC, includes both grid-point and spectral modeling. Associated with both of these are the problems of parameterization of sub-grid scale processes and the problems of initial data, which encompass the area of objective analysis, initialization, and more recently, four-dimensional data assimilation. The plan for operational model implementation on the newly acquired dual IBM 360/195 computer system is presented. The characteristics of the analysis-forecast systems to be used routinely are discussed.
