Short summary
The model and experiments in this paper are to study atmospheric flows on small (kilometre) scales. Compared to larger-scale flows, kilometre-scale motion is more difficult to predict, and geophysical balances are less valid. For these reasons, data assimilation (or DA, the task of using observations to initialise models) is more difficult, as the character of forecast errors (which have to be corrected by DA) is more difficult to represent. This model will be used to study small-scale DA.
