Outgoing Longwave Radiation (OLR) Data for the TOGA COARE Intensive Observing Period (IOP)Entry ID: COARE_lsa_olr
Abstract: DATA ACCESS
The OLR dataset is available upon request from the National Center for
Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO
The TOGA COARE Data Information System is in charge of
distributing all information related to TOGA COARE. Link to:
Richard Chinman at UCAR (firstname.lastname@example.org) can provide additional TOGA
COARE ... data management information if you have further questions or
problems locating a dataset.
TOGA COARE was a multidisciplinary, international research effort that
investigated the scientific phenomena associated with the interaction
between the atmosphere and the ocean in the warm pool region of the
western Pacific. The field experiment phase of the program took place
from 1 November 1992 through 28 February 1993 and involved the
deployment of oceanographic ships and buoys, several ship and
land-based Doppler radars, multiple low and high-level aircraft
equipped with Doppler radar and other airborne sensors, as well as a
variety of surface based instruments for in situ observations.
A 2.5 x 2.5 degree OLR dataset, compiled by Brant Liebmann from
CIRES/University of Colorado, is available from the NCAR Mass Store
(Dataset ds676.0). This dataset was put together from the NOAA
Environmental Satellite Data Information System (NESDIS) dataset,
filling in some of the existing data gaps. The time period covers
1974 through 1993. The files are in SUN binary and each file contains
1 year of data.
