CLPX-Model: Local Analysis and Prediction System: 4-D Atmospheric Analyses
Entry ID: NSIDC-0179

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Local Analysis and Prediction System (LAPS), run by the NOAA's Forecast Systems Laboratory (FSL), combines numerous observed meteorological data sets into a collection of atmospheric analyses. LAPS analyses data include hourly three-dimensional and surface distributions of temperature, surface u and v winds, vertical velocity, dew-point temperature, relative humidity, specific humidity, ...
