Summary
Abstract: This dataset includes weather forecasts with the 5th-generation
Mesoscale Model (MM5). From 27 Jan 2002 this is version 3, before that
version 2. The model is initialized using NCEP global analyses for the
region 30 West to 60 East and 0 to 90 North. Two grids are used :
58x73 with 60 km interval from 5 to 50 E and 15 to 51 N, and 73x73
with 20 km interval from 27 to 42 E and from 27 to 41 N. ... View entire text
