Annoucement (May 2016)


The purpose is to present ALARO-1 developments, plans, exchange experience and spread knowledge about the ALARO to a wider ALADIN/LACE/HIRLAM community.

About the scope of the working days

  • share the experience on ALARO-1vA validation, operational use
  • present latest developments ACRANEB2, TOUCANS (shallow convection), CSD, microphysics
  • link with SURFEX
  • further validation, tuning and scope of ALARO-1
  • discuss about plans

 

Tentative program:

  • Generalities
    • introduction, an overview
    • evaluation of ALARO-1vA (local experiences, reporting the current implementations, ...)
    • physics-dynamics interface: redesign of physics interfaces
    • coupling with SURFEX
    • ALARO-0 performance in climate simulations
  • ALARO-1 overview of current developments
    • TOUCANS: shallow convection
    • radiation: use of prognostic condensates and cloudiness and other novelties
    • precipitations aspects  (diurnal cycle issues, microphysics)
    • deep convection: complementary subgrid drafts; stochastic components
    • set-up of the next versions
      • radiation + TOUCANS + unsaturated downdraft
      • "full" version (radiation + TOUCANS + CSD) implemented in CY43t2
  • Discussion
    • current status, open questions/problems
    • recommended/possible resolutions, GCM tests, MUSC testbed, climate, load/benefits
    • future issues (microphysics, ...)


Three parts will be roughly split over three days, with some flexibility.

 

Schedule:

 

Starting Monday (12 September) morning, closing Wednesday (14 September) around noon.

 

Registration:

 
Please, confirm your participation (better before 1 July 2016) to Luc, Neva (neva.pristov@rzs-hm.si) and in CC Beatrice (Beatrice.Libioulle@meteo.be)
Contact them for any question.

 

 

Accommodation:


A block reservation has been made at Best Western County House hotel, at Square des Heros 2-4, 1180 Brussels, Belgium.
The price of single room (including breakfast) is 72€ for the night of Sunday to Monday, then 92€ for each subsequent night.

You can find information about the hotel at
http://www.bestwestern.be/en-be/hotels/best-western-county-house-of-brussels-brussels-92611

 
Do NOT reserve through the web site, but reserve by mail before 15 August 2016 (better earlier, to be sure there are enough rooms) to:
resas@countyhouse.be with the reservation code 'ALARO',
in order to get these special conditions.

The hotel is around 6 min bus trip or a small 20 min walking distance from the meeting place at RMI.
