wider geographical application. These recent applications include the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model ( Skamarock et al. 2008 ) and the NOAA hourly updated Rapid Refresh (RAP; Benjamin et al. 2016 ) and High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR; Smith et al. 2008 ) models. The goal of this study is to describe and validate the modifications to the RUC LSM that are motivated by these new applications. A previous six-level version of a land surface soil–vegetation scheme ( Smirnova et al

The authors thank the staff of the Weather Detachment at Luke Air Force Base for taking the upper-air soundings during the summer of 1993. Dr. David Rust discussed the results of the Colorado lightning modification field experiments with author RM and provided reprints of relevant papers. Mr. Ken Cummins of GAI provided copies of their high-quality lightning strike database for us to use. The comments and suggestions of three anonymous reviewers helped us to make substantial improvements in the

Until the present time, no technique or methodology has been demonstrated to study these interrelationships in laboratory or natural cloud environments. In the present study, a chemical kinetics approachis applied to study the nucleating behavior of hydrophobic silver iodide and silver iodide-silver chlorideaerosols in the isothermal environment of the CSUcloud chamber. Chemical kinetics is a methodologyfor the study

the afternoon of 28 July to the morning of 29 July, and it became fair on 30 July. There was cloudless, clear weather on 10–11 August. The two days 29 and 30 July were weekdays, whereas 10–11 August were the beginning of the traditional Japanese summer holidays. Hereinafter, observations during the period of 29–30 July 2002 are called the “weekday” observation, whereas those of 10–11 August 2002 are called the “holiday” observation. Kondo et al. (2005) used these holiday observation data of the

1. Introduction Weather generators have been used successfully for a wide array of applications. They became increasingly used in various research topics, including more recently, climate change studies. They can generate series of climatic data with the same statistical properties as the observed ones. Furthermore, weather generators are able to produce series for any length of time. This allows developing various applications linked to extreme events, such as flood analyses. Weather
