Regional MPAS--Model for Prediction Across Scales

Important note: The SMC MPAS modeling computer system is currently down. Forecasts will resume when the system is again operational.

Dr. Stephen Masters Consulting is now running regional MPAS domains in addition to two global forecasts run each day. MPAS (Model for Prediction Across Scales) was developed by and is supported by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. I am running Version 8.0.0 (June 2023) on a 32-core AMD Linux system. These regional domains are initialized from the United States NCEP Global Forecast System (GFS).

The small Florida domain below is a starting "proof of concept" to verify the proper setup and execution of MPAS. Over the coming months, many of my operational WRF jobs will be replaced by regional MPAS siulations.
