peru-mapMARINE WEATHER FORECAST OFF PERU

EXPERIMENTAL PRODUCT

Boris Dewitte, Patrick Marchesiello, & Katerina Goubanova (IRD)



The Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) modeling system is run on a 20km resolution grid over the Peru coastal area. Terrestrial data are provided by the US Geological Survey. The forecast uses initial and boundary data from the Global Forecast/Analysis System of the National Center for Environmental Prediction (NCEP, NWS/NOAA). The simulation starts one day before present using initial and boundary data interpolated from the 1-degree, 6-hourly NCEP Global Data Assimilation System (GDAS). Next, a 4 day forecast is conducted using boundary data from the 1-degree, 3-hourly NCEP Global Forecast System (GFS).

Note: GFS is run four times per day (00 UTC, 06 UTC, 12 UTC, and 18 UTC) out to 16 days. Computation is done with a resolution of about 55-km out to 3.5 days (84 hours), then about 80-km from 3.5 to 7.5 days (180 hours), and then about 110-km resolution for the rest - up to day 16 (384 hours). GFS data is then degraded for users on a global 1-degre resolution grid.
