MET Verification Techniques
  • Standard verification methods
  • gridded model data to point-based observations
  • gridded model data to gridded observations
  • Object-based verification method
  • comparing gridded model data to gridded
    observations

PCP-Combine command options
  • pcp_combine init_time
  • in_accum
  • valid_time
  • out_accum
  • out_file
  • -pcpdir path
  • -pcprx reg_exp

11
PCP-combine command options
  • init_time
  • Initialization time of the input Grib files in
    YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS format (required).
  • in_accum
  • Accumulation interval of the input Grib files in
    HH format (required).
  • valid_time
  • Desired valid time in YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS format
    (required).
  • out_accum
  • Desired accumulation interval for the output
    NetCDF file in HH format (required).
  • out_file
  • Name of the output NetCDF file to be written
    consisting of the sum of the accumulation
    intervals (required).

PCP_combine example Summing individual Stage IV
hourly precip
  • pcp_combine -sum 00000000_000000 01
    20080602_000000 6 obs_6hr.nc -pcpdir .
  • Note Set init_time to 00000000_000000 when
    summing observation files
  • Above command yields 6-hour OBS precip valid at
    00z 2 June 2008 in netcdf format
  • Filename obs_6hr.nc

Regrid forecasts with copygb
  • STIV Obs Grid 1121x881,polar stereo,Dx,Dy 4763
  • WRF Data Grid
  • 308 x 310 Lambert Proj with Dx,Dy 4000
  • Extract precip grid from WRF output GRIB file
  • Needs to be projected onto OBS grid (i.e. Stage
    IV)
  • wgrib V filename provides necessary details on
    each grid
