The nuclear power plant near Borssele is located at 51°25´51˝N, 3°43´06˝E (see Wikipedia).
Case studies for Borssele will be performed for a few different scenarios:
| Scenario || dates
| Easy || 11 Jan 2017
| High pressure, low wind ||
| Sea breeze ||
| Storm front ||
Meteorological lagged ensembles will be constructed from archived data from the Harmonie-AROME
The Easy scenario
In the Easy scenario meteorological uncertainties are small and the wind is blowing to
A first dataset to test the suitability for all the used models consists of the deterministic
forecast from Harmonie-AROME with standard settings for the 06UTC run of 11 Jan 2017. Time
steps are hourly up to T+48.
Harmonie-AROME code values can be found through the link on the right.
The data were originally created in FA format on a Lambert grid. For day-to-day operations
these data are converted to WMO-GRIB format on a regular 300x300 lat/lon grid from 49.000˚N
— 55.877˚N and 0.000˚E — 11.063˚E. These data are archived for later use.
The data that are supplied are the lat/lon GRIB data as archived. Moreover, the data are
also converted to NetCDF for convenience.
