spectral numerical prediction

The forecasting of atmospheric phenomena using a spectral model.

The model may be a simple shallow water model or a complex three-dimensional system with full parameterized physics. The model predicts the atmospheric variables in spectral space, but they are generally transformed to physical space for display, dissemination, and verification.
