Abstract

Using system simulation experiments (OSSEs), a study was conducted to derive the maximum amount of wind information from NIDS reflectivity data alone. It was found that when using reflectivity data alone, the 3-D wind field must also be inserted, along with clouds and precipitation, in order to obtain a reasonable forecast. This observation indicates that inserting either the horizontal or vertical wind field alone is not sufficient.
