Series: NOAA technical memorandum OAR GSD: 39.Publisher: Boulder, Colo. : U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, Earth System Research Laboratory, Global Systems Division, 2011Description: ix, 44 p. : ill. (chiefly col.) ; 28 cm.Report number: 39Subject(s): Atmospheric turbulence -- United States -- Research | Atmospheric turbulence -- Forecasting -- United StatesSummary: This report summarizes a formal quality assessment in support of the transition of the Graphical Turbulence Guidance version 2.5 (GTG2.5) algorithm to National Weather Service (NWS) operations. The current operational algorithm, GTG2, is based on the Rapid Update Cycle (RUC; Benjamin 2004) prediction system. The upcoming replacement of the RUC with the Rapid Refresh (RR; Benjamin 2006) prediction system necessitates an update to the turbulence algorithm.
