FLDAS Noah Land Surface Model L4 monthly 0.1 x 0.1 degree for Western Africa (GDAS and RFE2) V001 (FLDAS_NOAH01_A_WA_M) at GES DISC
Entry ID: FLDAS_NOAH01_A_WA_M_001


Summary
Abstract: This data set contains a series of land surface parameters simulated from the Noah 3.3 model in the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) Land Data Assimilation System (FLDAS). The data are in 0.10 degree resolution and range from January 2001 to present. The temporal resolution is monthly and the spatial coverage is Western Africa (5.3N, 18.7W, 17.7N, 25.9E). The files are in NetCDF format.

This simulation was forced by a combination of NCEP's Global Data Assimilation System (GDAS) data and NOAA CPC Africa Rainfall Estimation Algorithm v2 (RFE2) data.

The simulation was initialized on 1 January 2001 using soil moisture and other state fields from a FLDAS/Noah model climatology for that day of the year.
