DYCOMS-II Model: NOAA/ARL Eta Model Backward Trajectory Imagery (GIF)

Summary

The NOAA/ARL Eta Model Backward Trajectory Imagery (GIF) is one of several model products collected as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase-II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project field catalog operated by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL: http://catalog.eol.ucar.edu/dycoms) The images were produced utilizing the HYbrid Single-Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory (HYSPLIT) Model (http://www.arl.noaa.gov/ready/hysplit4.html). Backward trajectories were produced daily ending at 12 UTC and running 48 hrs. Three different source locations were used at points in the DYCOMS-II region. Each location had source heights at 250 and 1500 m. The products cover the period from 1-31 July 2001 and cover the DYCOMS-II region. All images are in GIF format.
