06 March 2004 Colorado Turbulence Simulation

Description:  Simulated atmospheric fields were generated using version 2.2 of the WRF model (ARW core).  The simulation was initialized at 00 UTC on 06 March 2004 with 1° GFS data and then run for 24 hours.  The simulation contains 2 domains with 5-km and 1-km horizontal grid spacing, respectively.  The simulation employed the following parameterization schemes:
  • Thompson microphysics
  • Eta planetary boundary layer
  • RRTM/Dudhia radiation
  • NOAH land-surface model
  • Explicit convection (i.e. no cumulus parameterization)
