Abstract

A study of the evolution of sounding data impact in the high-resolution GLAS model forecasts from 19 February 1976 has been conducted. The significant prognostic differences which develop in this case are shown to be traceable to specific initial state differences which resulted from the assimilation of satellite-derived temperature soundings.
