Paper Abstract

Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs) are an important tool for evaluating the potential impact of proposed new observing systems, as well as for evaluating trade-offs in observing system design, and in developing and assessing improved methodology for assimilating new observations. OSSEs conducted at NASA GSFC and elsewhere have indicated significant potential for space-based lidar winds to improve numerical weather prediction. In this paper we summarize OSSE methodology and earlier OSSE results, and present methodology and new results from a Quick OSSE designed to assess the potential impact of lidar winds on the predicted track of a specific hurricane.
