the Williamson et al. (1992) flow over a midlatitude mountain using a hexagonal grid of 40 962 cells and midpoint interpolation of PV from vertices to edges. This interpolation means that grid-scale PV oscillations can be present on the vertices, but not on the edges and so they are not present in the discretized solution of the momentum equation.

interest and each neighboring station. Other methods such as local interpolation only use climatic data from weather stations. Among these, IDW is usually used for missing data estimation ( Di Piazza et al. 2011 ). It computes a weighted average, using the inverse distance between target and surrounding station. Several variants of IDW have been developed, with principal focus on weighting schemes ( Teegavarapu and Chandramouli 2005 ; You et al. 2008 ). Kriging and its variants ( Goovaerts 1997

i th IP is the same as the p ( i )th point in the time series; that is, p (1) = 1, p ( K ) = N , and P ( i ) = ( i − 1)Δ t + 1, i = 2, 3, …, K − 1, where Δ t = ( N − 1)/( K − 1) is the interval between two adjacent IPs. As in Jin et al. (2018) , the cubic spline interpolation is applied to the IP scheme. The parameters A [ p ( i )] and B [ p ( i )] at IPs are selected as independent parameters and those at the other points are obtained by cubic spline interpolation; that is, (4

, and the vertical eddy viscosity profiles with the IP scheme. The influence of initial guesses, model errors, and data number on inversion was also discussed. As an extension, Zhang and Lu (2010) explored the inversion of OBCs in detail with the same model. Cao et al. (2012) inverted two-dimensional tidal OBCs in the Bohai and Yellow Seas (BYS), showing that using two IPs yielded the best simulated results. Guo et al. (2012) suggested that the scheme with three IPs and an interpolation radius

already pointed out by Bousquet et al. (2016) , there exist only a small amount of publications that deal with the finding of an optimal interpolation scheme depending on the radar geometry and scanning strategy (e.g., Zhang et al. 2005 ; Lakshmanan et al. 2006 ). These publications consider the interpolation of reflectivity data rather than wind. In this paper, a method is presented to deal with the challenge of interpolating wind data from operationally used radars. This is unique, as differences

, often the extent of nested domains may be such that their boundaries coincide with regions where the gradients in variables of interest are relatively large. A desired characteristic of interpolation schemes employed in the specification of boundary conditions for nested models is their ability to allow all resolvable waves to propagate across the coarse–fine grid interface with minimal distortion so thatcompatibility between the solutions computed on the different grids can be maintained. In this

function on that node. Naturally, we cannot assume the interpolation weights to be the same for all types of field α = 0, 1, 2, and 3. We should expect the coefficients to depend on the choice of basis functions . By analogy, with bilinear and conservative interpolation, we write where T is the target: a point , line, surface, or volume. Expressions (2) – (4) are very general; they apply to all field staggerings in 3D, irrespective of the order of the interpolation scheme. Let us look at

scheme, a vector was computed so long as there was at least one grid box above the threshold.) Of the six variables, only TQV and Q500 consistently provide vectors at all locations; Q850 is globally complete except in areas of high surface altitude. Vector fields with missing values are filled in using the same temporal and spatial interpolation schemes developed for the IR-based vectors. Here, we only show results for MERRA-2 variables, since results for GEOS FP are similar. A brief discussion on

water resources management. Here, transfer is akin to spatial interpolation at nonsampled locations (grid boxes) using measurements from sampled but sparse locations (grid boxes). Figure 1 provides a conceptual rendition of this idea of the transfer of uncertainty based on the concept of spatial interpolation (reprinted from Tang and Hossain 2009 ). This paper analyzes the open issues for developing an appropriate uncertainty transfer scheme that can routinely estimate various uncertainty metrics
