Integrated observational dataset for model validation [Roode, S. and C. Bretherton]



This is an external link to a SHEBA dataset from the University of Washington's Atmospheric Sciences Department. A central goal of the SHEBA project was to provide a comprehensive observational test of model simulations of the atmosphere-sea ice-ocean system over the Arctic Ocean. This integrated dataset is designed to bring together many of the observations needed to validate such models, and in particular to initialize, and force single-column model simulations during all phases of the annual cycle.
