DYNAMO Areal Averages from Observations and Model Data: DYNAMO Legacy Collection


This data set contains the DYNAMO areal averages of a number of surface and upper air parameters over the DYNAMO region at three hourly intervals. Areal averages are included for two regions, the DYNAMO Northern Sounding Array and the Southern Sounding Array. For each region there are two sets of averages included, one using just observations (DYNAMO radiosondes, satellite wind, TRMM precipitation, and COSMIC profiles) and a second analyses that also included the use of ECMWF operational analyses in data sparse regions. The data are in NetCDF format.
