Mesoscale Modelling and Data Assimilation
Conveners: S. Davolio , K. Lagouvardos 

This session welcomes contributions related to the meteorological modelling of mesoscale phenomena that affect the Mediterranean area and can be associated with severe weather and storms, as well as contribution concerning with development of data assimilation systems applied to high resolution NWP models. Novel aspects of research on model development and applications, including short-range probabilistic forecasting, coupling between meteorological, hydrological and ocean models, data assimilation aspects, predictability issues and strategies in ensemble construction are welcome. Applications of models to studies of meteorological phenomena like cyclogenesis, organized convection, heavy precipitation, orographic influences, and related processes are of particular interest of this session.
