ECMWF Joint Observing System Simulation Experiment (OSSE) Nature Run
Entry ID: NCAR_DS621.0

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A broad group of US and international partners organized and agreed to have
ECMWF compute a high resolution global gridded dataset that serves
as a reference dataset for general and collaborative observing
system simulation experiments (OSSE). This model output is termed
"Nature Run", because it is intended to be a best representation
possible of the true environmental conditions. The temporal and
spatial resolution are sufficient so the data may be used as an
experimental samples and validation data for planning future
observing systems. It is especially valuable for assessing future
satellite systems.
