LADCO 2016 WRF Modeling Results
This page provides access to model performance evaluation plots of the WI DNR WRF simulations for 2016. The results are displayed for a national 12-km, regional 4-km, and Lake Michigan 1.33-km domain. Many of the plots show model-to-observations comparisons and model performance statistics.
LADCO collaborated with WI DNR to develop 2016 WRF meteorology inputs for regional air quality modeling studies. We ran a series of WRF configuration sensitivities to find the best performing configuration for simulating air quality. Our evaluation is focusing on WRF’s skill at simulating surface temperature, moisture, and winds. We are also evaluating the ability of the model at capturing the land-lake breeze along the shores of Lake Michigan.
The LADCO Image Viewer is an interface to archives of images of model results. Navigate through the menus below to display a list of images associated with the LADCO 2016 WRF modeling. Once you’ve reached a terminal directory by navigating through these folders, you will see a list of thumbnail images. Either click on an image to view the full size image, or drag the image into the Comparison Popup Tray at the bottom of the screen. You can compare up to four images once you’ve dragged them into the Tray by clicking Launch Comparison Popup.
Note that because of the length of the simulation name strings, it’s best to use List View () to navigate the image viewer contents.
