Abstract:
The GOZCARDS Source Data for Temperature Monthly Zonal Averages on a Geodetic Latitude and Pressure Grid product (GozSmlpT) contains zonal means and related information (standard deviation, minimum/maximum value, etc.), calculated from the original products. The source Temperature data are from the GMAO MERRA model product DAS 3d analyzed state MAI6NVANA (v5.2.0; 1979 - onward). The vertical pressure range for Temperature are from 1000 – 0.015 hPa. The GozSmlpT source data are written using the new netCDF4 enhanced model using CF-1 metadata attributes. The data variables are organized into a Group hierarchy structure. Global Attributes describing the data file (e.g. data start/end time, spatial extent, etc.) are located at the file/root level. Users can use netCDF enabled tools to view the data. Since netCDF4 is based on the HDF5 format, HDF5 readers will also work with these data files. Parameters contained in the data files include the following: Variable Name |Description |Units /MERRA/average |Temperature Zonal Average from MERRA |(K) End of parameter information GOZCARDS (Global OZone Chemistry And Related trace gas Data records for the Stratosphere) refers to a commonly-formatted Earth system data record (ESDR) for stratospheric composition, of high relevance to the issue of ozone decline and recovery. High-quality long-term ozone and related trace gas data records are needed to (a) evaluate and understand composition changes in the atmosphere and (b) constrain model representations of atmospheric dynamics and photochemistry.
