COSMO LPDM

Introduction

The LM/COSMO LPDM model of Hubert Glaab of the German Weather Service DWD has been introduced and enhanced with the capability of backward calculations at Empa in the framework of the PhD theses of Sandy Ubl.

Status

The COSMO-LPDM is run on a supercomputer at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center CSCS. The software was implemented on a NEC SX-5 and was recently (May 2007) ported by Doris Folini to the Cray XT-3.

Simulations have been performed mainly for the station Jungfraujoch and, in the framework of a project for BAFU, for the station Payerne.
