ARPEGE-nh

Provided by Météo-France, FR

Model description

ARPEGE-nh is the non-hydrostatic version of the Météo-France operational configuration that inherits features from both the ARPEGE/IFS global model and the AROME non-hydrostatic Local Area model.

Experiment runs

ARPEGE-nh 2.5km atmosphere-only

Location:

/work/bk1040/DYAMOND/data/winter_data/DYAMOND_WINTER/METEOFR/ARPEGE-NH-2km/DW-ATM/ with grid files contained in atmos/fx/

Setup:

Atmosphere-only

Resolution:
  • horizontal grid spacing of 2.5km, comprising 16848632 grid columns, with spectral truncation T8000

  • number of vertical levels for the atmosphere: 75

Comments:
  • Similar the ARPEGENH 2.5km simulation for DYAMOND-Summer (see Stevens et al. 2019), but with an important improvement using microphysics from the LAM model AROME, specially tuned for high resolution non-hydrostatic modeling.
