TRAJ3D Air Mass Trajectory Model [Bowman]



This dataset contains 10-day forward and backward air parcel trajectories calculated with initial positions taken at 1-minute intervals alont the aircraft flight track for each START08 research flight (RF01 through RF18). There are two data formats for this data set (txt and netCDF), so there are four files for each flight.
