And ETA had already made its presence felt with two terrorist attacks during recent regional elections in the three Basque provinces of northern Spain: a car bomb in Madrid and a parcel bomb that maimed Gorka Landaburu, a well-known Basque journalist and broadcaster.
ETA has also planted bombs in university campuses, Basque businesses, and in one case, outside the home of two Spanish journalists who covered the Basque country for a national newspaper and a television network.
ETA's decision to target journalists is, in some respects, a reflection of its failure to convince society of the validity of its cause.

The ETA model is a newer model, which is very similar to the NGM model and forecasts the same atmospheric variables.
The ETA model was named after the ETA coordinate system, which is a mathematical coordinate system that takes into account topographical features such as mountains.
It is still too soon to determine whether or not the ETA model gives a more accurate forecast than the NGM model for all the forecast variables, but according to Dr. Ronald McPherson, Director of NCEP, the ETA model has outperformed all the other models in forecasting amounts of precipitation.

If the Eta is initialized with snow at their location, but no snow or shallow snow exists there in reality, then the forecaster should expect the Eta 2-m temperature forecast to be too cold, especially during daytime hours, and especially if the daytime temperatures are otherwise expected to be above freezing.
During the Eta forecast, the Eta physics allows the initial snowcover to change in response to the Eta forecast of snowmelt or snowfall.

 Eta Vertical Coordinate System   (Site not responding. Last check: )
By taking the difference in surface pressure between the Eta Model runs as a surrogate for the advancement of cold air, one can see that the cold air surge in the eta coordinate forecast has progressed further to the south and east than the sigma mode forecast.
This suggests that the eta mode was an improvement over the sigma coordinate in advancing the shallow cold air south and eastward.
Even though the current configuration of the Eta Model may have difficulty simulating these events, the overall performance of the Eta suggests that knowledgeable forecasters should be able to anticipate these events from available forecast fields.
