Short summary
An extended vertical grid, which reaches the lower stratosphere, for the regional atmospheric model COSMO was developed. This extended vertical grid was used in model runs simulating almost a full year. The model output was then validated using temperature and relative humidity measurements taken from synoptic radiosondes. Using this extended vertical grid, the model was found to run stably and produce realistic values.
