Title(s):Main Title: 5th PhD report: Assimilation of 3D Radar Reflectivities with an Ensemble Kalman Filter on the Convective Scale
Description(s):Abstract: An ensemble data assimilation system for 3D radar reflectivity data on the convective scale is introduced for the convection permitting numerical weather prediction model COSMO. KENDA, developed by Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) and its partners, provides a state-of-the-art ensemble data assimilation system on the convective scale for operational data assimilation and forecasting based on a variant of the ensemble Kalman filter. In this study, the radar forward operator EMVORADO is applied for the assimilation of radar reflectivity data to improve short-term model predictions of precipitation. Both deterministic and ensemble forecasts have been carried out based on KENDA. A case study shows that the assimilation of 3D radar reflectivity data clearly improves precipitation location in the analysis and has a positive impact on the forecast for several hours following the analysis. The influence of different update rates on the noise in terms of surface pressure tendencies and on the forecast quality in general are investigated. For a period of seven consecutive days the results are compared to those of DWD’s current operational radar assimilation scheme based on the latent heat nudging.
