Summary
Abstract: This data set contains a series of land surface parameters simulated from the NOAH 2.7.1, GLDAS/NOAH experiment 001, for Version 2 of the Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS-2). The data are in 1.0 degree resolution and range from January 1948 to the present. The temporal resolution is 3-hour.

The model simulation was initialized on simulation date January 1, 1948, using soil moisture and ... View entire text

Quality The data are provisional and subject to change as model improvements are implemented and new input data sets become available. Due to the fact that forcing data for Greenland are unreliable and the lack of a glacier/ice sheet model, snow water equivalent accumulates indefinitely in Greenland and a few other Arctic points. Therefore it is highly recommended that Greenland and other points with abnormally large snow water equivalent values be masked out when performing global analyses.
