GLDAS Mosaic Land Surface Model L4 Monthly 1.0 x 1.0 degree V001 (GLDAS_MOS10_M) at GES DISC
Entry ID: GLDAS_MOS10_M_001


Summary
Abstract: This data set contains a series of land surface parameters simulated from the Mosaic model in the Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS). The data are in 1.0 degree resolution and range from January 1979 to present. The monthly product is generated by averaging all the 3-hourly products in that month.

This simulation was forced by a combination of NOAA/GDAS atmospheric analysis fields, ... View entire text

Quality The data are provisional and subject to change as model improvements are implemented and new input data sets become available. Due to the fact that forcing data for Greenland are unreliable and the lack of a glacier/ice sheet model, snow water equivalent accumulates indefinitely in Greenland and a few other Arctic points. Therefore it is highly recommended that Greenland and other points with abnormally large snow water equivalent values be masked out when performing global analyses.
