SIMPLE POST-PROCESSING METHOD FOR VERTICAL CORRECTION BASED ON STRATIFIED NEAR-SURFACE ATMOSPHERIC PARAMETERS
Bulgarian Geophysical Journal, 2014, Vol. 40, DOI: https://doi.org/10.34975/BGJ-2014.40.2
The paper presents shortly a relatively simply and transparent, but meteorologically consistent method for physical interpolation with vertical correction to arbitrary points of interest, based on the distributed three dimensionally and stratified near-surface atmospheric parameters. Such procedure is needed relatively often in various environmental studies, when the output of some meteorological model has to be adjusted more precisely to location with known elevation, using one ore other postprocessing technique. The original authors’ proposal is described and demonstrated briefly using as test dataset the output of regional climate model RegCM4 for the monthly mean temperature for the year 2000 over Bulgaria and records from the station observations in the NIMH-BAS network.
