Ideally, systems that incorporate modeled meteorology based on hydrodynamic principles and four dimensional data assimilation (FDDA) techniques to constrain model errors should be able to provide the requisite resolution and accuracy of the meteorology information. One such example is the primitive equation Mesoscale Meteorological Model, Generation 4 (MM4) with Four Dimensional Data Assimilation (FDDA). This paper investigates the sensitivity of the modeled boundary layer and cloud parameters to different boundary layer parameterizations in the MM4 FDDA system.
