During this research project the WRF-model was installed and tested. The simulations of the
WRF-model give reasonable results. In the case of the RH-profiles at Paramaribo it performs as
well as the ECMWF-model forecasts and its analyses. We also found that the coarse resolution
of the initial and boundary values does not affect the correlation coefficient between the WRF
forecasts and the SW observation much. The influence of the vertical interpolation of the ECMWF
also has only minor effects on the correlation coefficient.
