  • Description:
    "One of the obvious deficiencies of the Flattery operational objective analysis method used in the NMC Final cycle is its inability to systematically weight data of differing type and quality with the forecast used as first guess to the analysis. This deficiency will become more glaring as each new observing system, with its own unique set of error characteristics, becomes operational. The biggest source of new data during the next few years will probably be satellite derived soundings. This paper reports on an experiment in which an attempt was made to systematically weight satellite soundings with the forecast first guess in the NMC operational objective analysis/forecast system"--Introduction.
