Date/Pages: September 2000; 61 pages
Abstract: This report describes the evaluation study of the forecast skill of the Battlescale Forecast Model (BFM) over three different regions with different terrain complexities and climates. The model computations are initialized with three different sets of initial conditions over Colorado, Washington, and Florida; forecast data are statistically compared with surface observation data. Statistical results of the BFM are compared to those of the Navy Operational Global Atmospheric Prediction System and Navy Operational Regional Atmospheric Prediction System.
