The proposal below has been revised to ensure that no exisiting use cases were lost. A categorisation has been added, with a second table showing categy and sub-category, with Uses Cases) in an attempt to help understand the context of the use cases. Warning: This only a proposal and the categorisation is arbitary and incomplete -- BruceWright - 06 Jul 2010

Use Cases

Below is a proposal to harmonise the INSPIRE TWG AC-MF and OGC Met-Ocean DWG Conceptual Modelling use cases. The idea would be to have each person only 'owning' one Use Case, with responsibilities shared between the TWG AC-MF & the Met-Ocean DWG.

New MO.DWG Use Case Category TWG AC-MF Use Case Old MO.DWG Use Case Editor / Owner Notes
1: Future Aviation Aviation - UC1: future aviation scenarios derived from NextGen Net Enabled Weather (NNEW) and Single European Sky (SESAR) AaronBraeckel No change
2: Current Aviation Aviation - UC2: current aviation operational meteorology services PeterTrevelyan No change
3: Routine Operational Forecasting in Support of Severe Weather Warning Service Routine Forecast Production / Emergency Response - UC3: routine operational forecasting activity at national weather service in support of severe weather warning service Possibly FredericGuillaud Original use case focussed on routine severe weather forecasting kept
4: Multi-Model Ensemble Forecasting to Reduce or Mitigate Impacts of Landfalling Hurricane Emergency Response - UC4: multi-model ensemble forecasting to reduce or mitigate impacts of landfalling hurricane JohnSchattel No change
5: Routine Decision Support for Winter Highways Maintenance Routine Decision Support UC5: Winter maintenance of highways infrastructure - decision support for de-icing - BruceWright (should be someone else?)  
6: Seasonal, Decadal & Climate Prediction Impact Assessment Routine Decision Support IUC4: Use of Climate Change Scenarios UC6: seasonal forecasting for agriculture in India BruceWright UC6 extended into decadal & climate prediction, with removal of climate record and specific example of agriculture in India
7: Climate Assessment based on Past Data Routine Decision Support IUC3: Climate Assessment (past data) UC7: climate impact assessment for economic development in sub-saharan Africa JeremyTandy UC7 re-focussed climatology, with removal of climate prediction and specific example of economic development in sub-saharan Africa
8: Integration of Weather Data with Efforts to Combat Wildfires Emergency Response - UC8: Use of Meteorology in Support of Emergency Response JohnSchattel Renamed to make this specific to Wild Fires, as Emergency Response covered in other uses cases
9: Sustained Environmental Science Campaign Environmental Science Campaign - UC9: sustained environmental science campaign AndrewWoolf No change
10: Automated Steering of High-resolution Local Weather Forecast Models Routine Forecast Production - UC10: Automated Steering of High-resolution Local Weather Forecast Models BenDomenico No change
11. Flood Forecasting Emergency Response IUC2: Flood Forecasting UC11: Riverine Flood Forecasting using Meteorological Ensemble Forecasts Possibly FredericGuillaud UC11 extended to cover range of flooding forecasting scenarios, not just use ensembles. Interface with Hydrology (i.e. OGC Hydrology DWG and INSPIRE Annex 1 Hydrography TWG) needs to be carefully managed
12:Plume Forecasting in Support of Emergency Response Emergency Response IUC1: Use of Meteorology in Support of Emergency Response (Plume Forecasting) - BruceWright As the INSPIRE use case is now specific to Plume forecasting, it has been included as a new case on the harmonised list

Use Case Categories

Below is a proposal to categorise the use cases, with a further sub-categorisation, with some details, where known. The proposed harmonised MO.DWG use case are included to show how these cover the categories. However, the list of categories and sub-categories is incomplete.

Category Sub-category Further Detail New MO.DWG Use Case Editor / Owner
Aviation Future Aviation Airport Weather, Optimal Flight Path 1: Future Aviation AaronBraeckel
Current Aviation 2: Current Aviation PeterTrevelyan
Routine Forecast Production Severe Weather Elements Wind, Rain, Snow, Ice, Extreme High or Low Temperatures, Thunderstorms, Tornadoes 3: Routine Operational Forecasting in Support of Severe Weather Warning Service Possibly FredericGuillaud
? ? 10: Automated Steering of High-resolution Local Weather Forecast Models BenDomenico
Emergency Response Severe Weather Elements Wind, Rain, Snow, Ice, Extreme High or Low Temperatures, Thunderstorms, Tornadoes 3: Routine Operational Forecasting in Support of Severe Weather Warning Service Possibly FredericGuillaud
Hurricane Track, Intensity, Landfall. Probabalistic, often using ensembles 4: Multi-Model Ensemble Forecasting to Reduce or Mitigate Impacts of Landfalling Hurricane JohnSchattel
River Flooding Fluvial, but including Flash-Flood (in 'River Canyons') and Longer Term Flooding 11. Flood Forecasting Possibly FredericGuillaud
Coastal Flooding Height of Surge, Height of 'Total Water', Probability of Exceedence of Thresholds. "Storm-Surge" is the interaction of tides with action of wind and pressure; negative surges also important as a shipping hazard; Probabalistic estimates are obtained from ensembles - n/a
Avalanche Risk of Occurence - n/a
Wildfire Trigger Risk, Spread 8: Integration of Weather Data with Efforts to Combat Wildfires JohnSchattel
Plume Fire, Chemical Release, Nuclear Release, Volcanic Eruption, Saharan dust (e.g. methodology for the identification of natural african dust episodes in PM10 and PM2.5, as the exceedances of the PM10 daily limit value need reporting under EU air quality legislation) 12: Plume Forecasting in Support of Emergency Response Main.Bruce.Wright
Routine Decision Support Forecast-based Decision Support Most meteorological parameters 5: Routine Decision Support for Winter Highways Maintenance BruceWright (should be someone else?)
Climatology Based Decision Support Most meteorological parameters 6: Seasonal, Decadal & Climate Prediction Impact Assessment BruceWright
Climate Prediction Based Decision Support Primarily temperature, Precipitation 7: Climate Assessment based on Past Data JeremyTandy
Environmental Science Campaign Short Environmental Science Campaign Small number ot organisations, lasting only a few days - n/a
Sustained Environmental Science Campaign Large international activity, involving a large number of organsations, lasting months 9: Sustained Environmental Science Campaign AndrewWoolf
