Abstract: A web-based mesoscale model analysis tool built with Java Server Pages is under development. With this tool a user is able to 1) run either the MM5 or WRF mesoscale model in standalone mode or as an ensemble on a Linux cluster; 2) generate error statistics for both the surface and upper air regions based on the model output and ?truth? data derived from a mesonet (for the surface analysis) and raobs (for the upper air analysis); 3) store the results in an XML database; and 4) display error statistic results employing VisAD-based routines. In addition, a java web service application has been developed which allows a client on a remote machine to query the XML database on the server for model statistics.
