NCEPDOE AMIP-II Reanalysis (R-2)

NCEPDOE AMIP-II Reanalysis (R-2) The NCEPDOE Atmospheric Model Intercomparison Project (AMIP-II) reanalysis is a follow-on project to the 50-year (1948present) NCEPNCAR Reanalysis Project. NCEPDOE AMIP-II re-analysis covers the 20-year satellite period of 1979 to the present and uses an updated forecast model, updated data assimilation system, improved diagnostic outputs, and fixes for the known processing problems of the NCEPNCAR reanalysis. Only minor differences are found in the primary analysis variables such as free atmospheric geopotential height and winds in the Northern Hemisphere extratropics, while significant improvements upon NCEPNCAR reanalysis are made in land surface parameters and landocean fluxes. This analysis can be used as a supplement to the NCEPNCAR reanalysis especially where the original analysis has problems. The differences between the two analyses also provide a measure of uncertainty in current analyses. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society American Meteorological Society

Abstract

The NCEPDOE Atmospheric Model Intercomparison Project (AMIP-II) reanalysis is a follow-on project to the 50-year (1948present) NCEPNCAR Reanalysis Project. NCEPDOE AMIP-II re-analysis covers the 20-year satellite period of 1979 to the present and uses an updated forecast model, updated data assimilation system, improved diagnostic outputs, and fixes for the known processing problems of the NCEPNCAR reanalysis. Only minor differences are found in the primary analysis variables such as free atmospheric geopotential height and winds in the Northern Hemisphere extratropics, while significant improvements upon NCEPNCAR reanalysis are made in land surface parameters and landocean fluxes. This analysis can be used as a supplement to the NCEPNCAR reanalysis especially where the original analysis has problems. The differences between the two analyses also provide a measure of uncertainty in current analyses.
