New model on Windy: ICON vs. COSMO-EU vs. COSMO-DE

    @lrg-mitglied I am not sure that form of a grid is so important for model quality.

  • @ivo
    in my opinion, the future of weather modelling is MPAS (Model for Prediction Across Scales) which uses a flexible grid configuration that gradually refines to a high spatial grid resolution in the area of interest (see image for USA) or in an area with complex terain (see the Andes mountains, South America). In such a flexible mesh we save computational effort compared to a global model using the same high spatial grid resolution.
