dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this project is to assess the performance of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model, a community numerical weather prediction model, in predicting the downward solar radiation and temperature for representative cases. The model forecasts will be validated using data from a weather station located on the Creighton campus. One “clear sky” day is used to assess the radiation scheme treatment of scattering and absorption by water vapor. A day where clouds form and dissipate tests the model’s ability to produce clouds and the radiation scheme’s treatment of cloud reflection and absorption.en_US
