Summary
Abstract: This data set contains a series of land surface parameters simulated
from the Mosaic land-surface model (LSM) for Phase 2 of the North
American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS-2). The data are in
1/8th degree grid spacing and range from Jan 1979 to the present.
The temporal resolution is hourly. The file format is WMO GRIB-1.
