North American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS)
Entry ID: NOAA_NLDAS

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: North American (NLDAS) is being developed that will lead to more accurate reanalysis and forecast simulations by numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. Specifically, this system will reduce the errors in the stores of soil moisture and energy which are often present in NWP models and which degrade the accuracy of forecasts. NLDAS is currently running retrospectively and in near real-time on a ... View entire text
