Model description

IFS-H is a hydrostatic spectral transform model with a semi-Lagrangian semi-implicit solution procedure, discretised on a cubic octahedral grid (Wedi 2014, Malardel et al. 2016). Here we used the single precision version of IFS (cycle 45r2). Information on IFS can be found at the IFS documentation . Note that cycle 45r2 differs from 45r1 only by a technical change in ecbuild and the change from double to single precision, thus 45r1 is still the relevant reference.
