6 August 2010 Meteorological parameters analysis above Oukaimeden Observatory using NCEP/NCAR data

We present a characterization of meteorological parameters: Wind and direction speed, temperature, relative humidity and pressure. Data set is provided by the system of NCEP/NCAR Re-analysis. The statistical treatment of data will cover the years between 2003 and 2006 for the Observatory Oukaïmeden. An analysis of monthly, seasonal, and annual results is presented. We calculated the Richardson number for each month of the year. In addition, this paper describes a comparison between balloon-sounding made at different stations and coincident model-based meteorological analysis. The comparison allows the assessment reliability of the analysis in studied period.
