· Optimisation of initial capability for assimilation of GPS data, including implementation of any necessary bias correction scheme (based on results from WP 6000)
· Parallel, quasi-operational, assimilation in demonstration mode for a period of at least one month.
· Generation of individual case studies of regional interest for detailed study. Cases will be biased towards more extreme events and/or where current operational models give poor guidance on an event.
Verification using both
objective and subjective verification methods.
· Comparison and appraisal of the different assimilation methodsDeliverable. The comparison of the case studies is included in an overall comparson report, Comparison of TOUGH impact studies with ground-based GPS observations.
