Maussion, F; Scherer, D: Regional atmospheric reanalysis on the Tibetan Plateau using the WRF numerical weather prediction model
Poster, 7th Sino-German Workshop on Tibetan Plateau Research, Hamburg: 2011-03-03 - 2011-03-06

Meteorological observations over the Tibetan Plateau are scarce. The standard gridded climatological datasets are often considered as insufficient partly because of their resolution, which is too coarse for the plateau's complex topography. Meteorological stations on the TiP are rare and unequally distributed, preventing the use of statistical downscaling methods. Regional Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models that are driven by large scale atmospheric data can be used to retrieve meteorological fields at high spatial and temporal resolution.
