6TH COSMO GENERAL MEETING20 23 September 2005ZurichReport from the Scientific Project Manager (SPM) Tiziana PaccagnellaARPA-SIMContentScientific and technical activities will be presented by WP coordinators during their Overview TalksI will briefly go through major steps related to COSMO management and coordination during the past year:STC Meeting Warsaw - December 2004Work Packages Coordinators Meeting DWD, 3-4 May 200514th STC meeting DWD, 13 June 2005Work Packages Coordinators (SAC) Meeting Bologna, 1-2 September 2005STC Meeting Warsaw - December 2004Approval of the new organization of the COSMO General MeetingOct 2004Sept. 2005Dec 2004STC Meeting Warsaw - December 2004 Approval of the 2005 work packages From the minutes of the meeting: There are about 120 WPs, 5 of them without any human resources. Much work is devoted to the operational maintenance of the LM system in each COSMO Member State but there is a lack in resources for scientific development Oct 2004Sept. 2005Dec 2004Work Packages Coordinators MeetingDWD, 3-4 May 2005Final decisions about the COSMO general meeting organizationAgenda WorkshopsScientific contributions1-day WG1 workshop to discuss the future strategy of COSMO about Data Assimilation COSMO Verification Package: a project is requiredOct 2004Sept. 2005May 2005WPCMeetingDWD May2005Work Packages Coordinators MeetingDWD, 3-4 May 2005 (2)Critical aspectslack of man power the solution is not easy to be found. A multi-component strategy must be designed to tackle the problem by different directions centralize some of the activities which are duplicate in the COSMO countries; this would allow to save human resources to be diverted on other activitiesTraining of new scientists also by means of a visiting scientists program DisciplineCOSMO scientists to do their best to respect the deadlines, to answer the mails, to circulate information etc.etc. Oct 2004Sept. 2005May 2005Work Packages Coordinators MeetingDWD, 3-4 May 2005 (2)An updated overview of the skill of the model will be regularly presented by the WG5 Coordinator and discussed at every future WPC meetingOct 2004Sept. 2005May 200514th STC meeting DWD, 13 June 2005It is necessary to better organize COSMO activities to have a higher degree of efficiency in pursuing COSMO objectives.The weakness due to lack of human resources must be overcome concentrating man power on strategic priorities.Starting from 2006 a new organisation of the COSMO activities will be implemented and tested.Oct 2004Sept. 2005June200514th STC meeting DWD, 13 June 2005STC defines COSMO strategySAC (WP Coordinators + SPM) defines a preliminary list of projects fitting COSMO strategyGeneral Meeting parallel sessions: collection of proposals and fine- tuning of projectsSAC defines a priority list to be submitted to the decisions of STCSTC selects a limited (one-digit) numbers of top priority projectsWP coordinators identify Project Leaders Project Leaders prepare a detailed Project description and a clear project plan (project activities, human resources, milestones)STC gives the final approval of the projectsSTC members assigns human resources to the projectsOct 2004Sept. 2005June2005COSMO SREPSBrainstorming at DWDDWD, 14 June 2005A brainstorming about the development of a new ensemble system for short-range (SREPS) based on LM was held at DWD. Participants: DWD staff and SPM Outcome of the meeting:COSMO-SREPS will see a strong cooperation with INM-Spain INM will include LM among the models (5 including LM) they are running nested in 4 different global models.Oct 2004Sept. 2005June2005COSMO SREPSBrainstorming at DWDDWD, 14 June 20051) INM will run LM at 25-km grid for a large domain driven by GME, ECMWF, GFS and UKMO, and COSMO would use these four LM runs to drive the COSMO-SREPS at 10/7 km over the COSMO-LEPS domain. These runs would be performed at the ECMWF, and we would extract frames from the Spanish LM runs.2) Activity to develop perturbations on the model trajectories, e.g. stochastic physics, will be carried on. For this activity a cooperation will be possible both with INM and later probably also with UKMO.
