GII and Nowcasting Convection at KNMI

Published: 01 June 2008

Marianne Koenig (EUMETSAT) demonstrated the GII product. For the forecaster this was a very interesting talk as it showed the advantages the use of GII has to a model. Case studies saw the potential the GII product has and which added value(!) the GII has to a normal model run.

The lecture was followed by Maurice Schmeitz from KNMI on the development and verification of a new model output statistics (MOS) system, which is intended to help the forecasters to decide whether a weather alarm for severe thunderstorms should be issued.
