Abstract: A prototype system of coupled mesoscale and microscale models was developed to produce an analysis that considered higher-resolution terrain. Research was initiated to integrate the microscale code with the mesoscale code to attain higher-resolution meteorological forecasts for target areas and other localized areas on the battlefield. A step-wise approach was employed to develop a modular prototype that would first show improved winds using high-resolution diagnostic models, but then be capable of interchanging various components. The San Francisco Bay area was selected as the common simulation domain, since both models had already been run there in previous studies.
