Use of Short Range Weather Model Ensembles in Air Quality Forecasts

1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm


Welcome and Overview of the Training
Bill Ryan, The Pennsylvania State University

Numerical weather prediction models are a vital tool in the weather forecasting process. As the models continue to improve, ensembles have been shown to improve the predictive capabilities of numerical models as well as provide additional products for forecasters. This course explores the use of ensembles for air quality forecasting. A wide range of topics will be covered, beginning with a basic introduction to ensembles, including how they are constructed and the basic theory behind them. From there the course will explore how to access ensemble models, their display and ultimately instruction on how they can be integrated into air quality forecasting.
