HARMONIE-AROME scientific support staff
Short Term
Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI)
de Bilt
The numerical weather prediction (NWP) model HARMONIE-AROME is used for operational short-range weather forecasts in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Sweden. It is developed, maintained, and validated as part of the shared ALADIN–HIRLAM system by a collaboration of 26 countries in Europe and northern Africa on short-range mesoscale NWP. The department of Research and Development Weather and Climate Models, as part of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, is now looking for a HARMONIE-AROME scientific support staff.

• You will perform the required HARMONIE-AROME experimentation as is laid out in the DOWA proposal, notably the production of a ten year re-analysis.
• You will study the impact of wind farms on drag parametrization in HARMONIE-AROME.
• You will perform experimentation on the coupling between HARMONIE-AROME and DALES.
• You will develop and execute validation tools and document the findings and their use.

The department of Research and Development Weather and Climate Models is a recently formed research unit consisting of experts on weather, climate and atmospheric composition modelling. It supports the operational weather forecasting and alert function of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, and contributes to the international network of scientific research in these areas. Expertise areas concentrate on modelling (extreme) meteorological events, physical, chemical and dynamical processes in the atmosphere, sea level rise, as well as global and regional climate changes. The research unit consists of approximately 50 staff members and is involved in many national and international research projects.

Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute

The Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment is responsible for the Dutch main road network, the main waterway network, the main water systems, and the environment in which they are embedded. The Ministry facilitates smooth and safe flow of traffic, keeps the national water system safe, clean, user friendly and protects the Netherlands against flooding. Efficient, safe and liveable: that's Infrastructure and Environment.

The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) is the national institute for weather, climate research and seismology. It disseminates weather information to the public at large, the government, aviation and the shipping industry in the interest of safety, the economy and a sustainable environment. To gain insight into long-term developments, KNMI conducts research on climate change. An important role of KNMI is to help society to reduce risks by giving warnings to the general public and specific customers.
