Goals

  • Summary of activities in the WG3 of COST ES1404
  • Preparation of the deliverables, i.e.:
  • D6 Review report on snow data assimilation techniques and the use of snow observations in NWP, hydrology and climate models.

  • D7 Recommendations on how to get and use conventional snow observations from national networks for data assimilation and model validation.

  • D8 Recommendations about sustainable ways to create snow products for users by combining remote-sensing and conventional snow observations with modelling results.

  • D9 Report on spatial and temporal representativeness errors of snow measurements for DA in NWP and hydrological models.

  • D10 Peer-reviewed publications on advanced DA techniques for NWP and hydrological models.

  • D12 Two topical workshops for addressing the different focuses of the Action (1. Emphasis on characterization and measurements, 2. Emphasis on snow data assimilation in NWP and hydrology models).

  • D13 Training school on snow measurements and DA.
  • D14 Each of the three working groups will produce a review paper by the end of the Action.

 

Tasks of the WG3:

  • Task 3.1: Overview of the various snow observations used in NWP, hydrology and climate studies for different purposes including validation and data assimilation
  • Task 3.2: Finding a new method for combining satellite observations with conventional in-situ snow measurements and modelling results.

  • Task 3.3: Looking for strategies towards a more extended usage of conventional snow observations to include observations from high-resolution national networks into NWP, hydrological and climate models.

  • Task 3.4: Acquiring more information about observational errors relevant for DA by establishing links between the modelling and measurement communities via WG1 and WG2.
