Coupled mesoscale-LES modeling of a diurnal cycle during the CWEX-13 field campaign: From weather to boundary-layer eddies

The article presents the first known NWP simulations of real-world weather that span four orders of magnitude in resolution from the synoptic scale to the large-eddy simulation (LES) scale (111 km to 8.2 m), explicitly resolving realistic three-dimensional eddies in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL)
