Australian Cold Front Research Project III (CFRP III) Model Forcing and Data for the GEWEX Cloud System Study Data Integration for Model Evaluation (GCSS-DIME)
Entry ID: GISS_GCSS-DIME_CFRP3

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: The Australian Cold Front Research Project (CFRP) Phase III case study
focused on a cool change passage that took place over the south coast
of Australia (approximate area 50S-25S latitude, 125E-160E longitude)
over the time period November 17-19, 1984. The data presented here are
from 17 Nov 1984 to 19 Nov 1984 and cover a region from 5S to 65S
latitude and from 95E to 175W longitude.

The data for this experiment is under Working Group 3 (Extratropical
Layer Cloud Systems) of the GEWEX Cloud System Study (GCSS) to improve
physical parameterizations of clouds, other boundary layer processes,
and their interactions.
