The combined use of three different approaches to obtain the best estimate of meso-β surface winds over complex terrain - Research note

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Three approaches for estimating meso-β (Δx=5-10 km) surface winds over complex terrain are applied to obtain best estimates of typical summertime surface flow in Israel, based on a detailed 3-D model, a one-level sigma model and a dense network of surface wind observations. A scheme for combining the three approaches is outlined and illustrated through two examples showing how the approaches complement each other. It is suggested that such a man-machine combination is best for estimation of surface winds over complex terrain.
