MERRA2 dataset

Post by Fantine » November 15th, 2017, 11:04 am

A conversion program is now available to convert MERRA2 files to ARL format for HYSPLIT application. It is in the trunk/data2arl/mer2arl directory and is called mer2arl.

Note:
A readme file (Readme_mer2arl.txt) is available in the directory.
The required library is netCDF version 4.
An example csh script (run.mer2arl.wget) for downloading the MERRA files is available in the directory.
The converter processes data on native model levels and takes variables from four input files.
*tavg3_3d_asm_Nv*
*tavg1_2d_flx_Nx*
*tavg1_2d_slv_Nx*
*tavg1_2d_int_Nx*

MERRA2 is a global dataset with spatial resolution in 0.6x0.5 degree and 3-hour temporal resolution. There are 72 native model levels from the surface to 0.01 hPa. The downloading web page is https://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/daac-bin/FTPSubset2.pl (registration required).
