The goal of this project is twofold: first, to ensure that all the models developed by the UAEREP awardees are deployed locally for research, testing, and ultimate deployment in coordination with UAE NCM. A local modeling platform will be developed to include all models with their associated libraries and forcing data. Second, the different models developed as part of different projects under the UAEREP program will be integrated. This project will pursue the goal of developing a blended version of one model that integrates all the work of the different investigations and incorporates all updates.
Necessary adjustments will be done in the computational facilities at KU to accommodate the deployment of all models. Eventually, all models and the unified multi-component WRF model will be made accessible only to NCM experts along with the obtained results.
