Summary
Abstract: The Rapid Update Cycle, version 2 at 40km (RUC-2, known to the Cold Land Processes community as RUC40) model is a Mesoscale Analysis and Prediction System (MAPS) data set that uses the Model Output Reduced Data Set (MORDS) version. This data set has been subsetted for use in the Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX). The data are in a 40 km (approximate) Lambertian latitude/longitude grid ... View entire text
