CM20N20S150W: AIRS, IPSL, and MIROC5 Data at 150W

Description Usage Format Details Source Examples


This matrix of data contains specific humidity observations from AIRS, 4 runs of the IPSL climate model, and 6 runs of the MIROC5 climate model. All series have been gridded according to the IPSL model grid. This data set contains 3012 observations at 150W between 20N and 20S at an altitude of 500 hPa.




The format is:
