NASA’s GMAO Atmospheric Motion Vectors Simulator: Description and Application to the MISTiC Winds Concept [STUB]

Abstract: An atmospheric wind vectors (AMVs) simulator was developed by NASA’s GMAO to simulate observations from future satellite constellation concepts. The synthetic AMVs can then be used in OSSEs to estimate and quantify the potential added value of new observations to the present Earth observing system and, ultimately, the expected impact on the current weather forecasting skill. The GMAO AMV simulator is a tunable and flexible computer code that is able to simulate AMVs expected to be derived fro…
