Archon - The Simple Archival Information System
Entry ID: Archon
Abstract: These data are part of the Goddard Satellite-based Surface Turbulent Fluxes Version-2c (GSSTF 2c) Dataset recently produced through a MEaSURES funded project led by Dr. Chung-Lin Shie (UMBC/GEST, NASA/GSFC), converted to HDF-EOS5 format. The stewardship of this HDF-EOS5 dataset is part of the MEaSUREs project, ... http://earthdata.nasa.gov/our-community/community-data-system-progr...
This is a Daily (24-hour) product; data are projected to equidistant Grid that covers the globe at 1x1 degree cell size, resulting in data arrays of 360x180 size.
The daily fluxes are produced for each individual available SSM/I satellite tapes (e.g., F08, F10, F11, F13, F14 and F15), and then serve as input to the Combined daily fluxes (GES_DISC_GSSTF_2c).
These HDF-EOS5 files contain one grid that have 9 variables:
"E" 'latent heat flux' (W/m**2),
"STu" 'zonal wind stress' (N/m**2),
"STv" 'meridional wind stress' (N/m**2),
"H" 'sensible heat flux' (W/m**2),
"Qair" 'surface air (~10-m) specific humidity' (g/kg),
"WB" 'lowest 500-m precipitable water' (g/cm**2),
"U" '10-m wind speed' (m/s),
"DQ" 'sea-air humidity difference' (g/kg)
"Tot_Precip_Water" 'total precipitable water' (g/cm**2)
The double-quoted labels are the short names of the data fields in the HDF-EOS5 files.
The short name for this data set is GSSTF_F14
Parameters contained in the data files include the following:
DQ|sea-air humidity difference|(g/kg)
E|latent heat flux|(W/m^^2)
H|sensible heat flux|(W/m^^2)
Qair|surface air (~10-m) specific humidity|(g/kg)
STu|zonal wind stress|(N/m^^2)
STv|meridional wind stress|(N/m^^2)
Tot_Precip_Water|Total Precipitable Water|(g/cm^^2)
U|10-m wind speed|(m/s)
WB|lowest 500-m precipitable water|(g/cm^^2)
