The Goddard Cumulus Ensemble (GCE) model

The GCE model has been used to simulate idealized thunderstorm driven by large-scale forcing. The GCE model is also the essential tool to develop various bulk and spectra-bin microphysical schemes, which have been shared with other modeling systems.

 

The NASA-Unified Weather Research and Forecasting (NU-WRF) model

The NU-WRF is the regional multi-nesting mesoscale model develped at NCAR. Various NASA physics modules and modeling framework have been integrated to develop the NU-WRF. For satellite mission support, our group also adapted a spectra bin microphysical scheme into the NU-WRF.
