Abstract: Meteorological datasets are available from NOAA's National Climatic Data Center
in Asheville, NC http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/coare/index.html
NOAA's National Oceanographic Data Center in Silver Spring, MD is
archiving and distributing all COARE datasets related to oceanography
COARE datasets archived at the National Center for Atmospheric
Research (NCAR) in Boulder, ... CO http://dss.ucar.edu/pub/toga_coare/
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.
1) U.S.-National Meteorological Center (Washington, NMC) analysis and
forecast fields, available from the National Center for Atmospheric
Research (NCAR) Mass Storage System (http://dss.ucar.edu/index.html)
The main features of each data set, identified by an NCAR reference
number dsnnn.n, are as follows:
+ ds067.0: NMC 65x65 Northern and Southern Hemisphere Stratospheric
Analyses, daily June 1981 continuing; 12 UTC fields.
+ ds067.1: Gelman's CAC 65x65 Northern and Southern Hemisphere
Analyses, daily September 1978 continuing; 12 UTC fields.
+ ds082.0: NMC Global Analyses, daily July 1976 continuing; 00 and 12
UTC; 2.5 degree grid fields.
+ ds082.1: NMC Global Boundary Layer Analyses, daily July 1976
continuing; This data set is a subset of the ds082.0 data set. It
includes surface and 1000 hPa fields only.
+ ds084.0: NMC Medium Range Forecast (MRF) Model, Global 10-Day
Forecasts, daily 1990 continuing; 12 hourly interval forecasts; R30
+ ds084.2: NMC Sigma Analyses, daily September 1990 continuing. 00,
06, 12 and 18 UTC, global T126 (beginning March 1991) fields.
* ds084.5: NMC MRF Model Flux, daily March 1990 continuing. 00, 06, 12
and 18 UTC analysis fields; 24 and 36 MRF 12 hour forecast fields; 384
x 190 global Gaussian grid fields
2) Operational analysis fields available from the TCIPO
The NMC operational analysis fields for the COARE period alone, are
available on one Exabyte tape. This dataset, which has been built from
the NMC ds082.0 dataset available from NCAR, consists of 2.5 x 2.5
degree GLOBAL fields basic atmospheric variables over the period July
1992 - October 1993 ONLY (the NCAR dataset consists of hemispheric
fields since 1976). Some interpolating of the NCAR data has also been
done so that there are no missing days on the tape. Finally data on
tape are in Sun binary format. For questions contact George Kiladis
3) Atlas "A Synoptic-Scale Overview of the TOGA COARE Intensive
Observing Period November 1992 - February 1993, Based on Snalyses from
U.S. Operational Global Data Assimilation Systems".
This atlas, which contains wind and precipitation fields was generated
by global assimilation systems of the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical
Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) and the National
Meteorological Center (NMC). Data used in the atlas are also
available from Mike Fiorino (email@example.com).
