Abstract

The First LAPS User Workshop was organized in 2010 by the Forecast Applications Branch (FAB) of the Global Systems Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (NOAA/OAR), the primary developers of LAPS. Users in the private sector include companies specializing in renewable energy and international weather forecast services. Internationally, LAPS is used by numerous national weather agencies and research institutes on five continents. Participants agreed that the portability of LAPS could be significantly enhanced by using emerging communication and computational technologies. Other software-related developments reviewed or requested at the workshop include the parallelization of LAPS codes for vastly increased computational efficiency, the continued use of coding standards, the exploration of new opportunities such as what geographic information systems (GIS) may offer for LAPS, proper documentation of all software, and a more formal protocol for contributions from the vast array of national and international users.
