Description: MINES ParisTech, O.I.E. – Centre Observation, Impacts, Energie, CS 10207 rue Claude Daunesse, 06904 Sophia Antipolis Cedex, France. The weather research and forecasting model (WRF) is initialized with ERA-Interim re-analysis to produce a higher resolution dataset over a one month period. WRF is supposed to introduce small scale information and maintain the mean large scale features. A detailed spectral analysis is performed to verify this statement. It reveals that consistency in large-scale features is not achieved for wavelengths greater than or equal to 6° even with the activation of spectral nudging.
