ARCMIP: EASE-Grid Model Data


Model data from participating Arctic Regional Climate Model Intercomparison Project (ARCMIP) modelers was re-gridded to fit the ARCMIP EASE-Grid, a 50km equal area grid on a northern azimuthal projection. See the Readme file or the ARCMIP regridding project webpage for more details. Data is in NetCDF and consists of monthly files from September 1997 - September 1998, daily files from May 1998, and daily column files from 19970901 - 19980930. This dataset contains the EASE-Grid versions of the ARCSyM, COAMPS, HIRHAM, NARCM, and SMHIRC datasets along with the original model data and the re-gridding source code.
