FLDAS Noah Land Surface Model L4 daily 0.1 x 0.1 degree for Southern Africa (GDAS and RFE2) V001 (FLDAS_NOAH01_A_SA_D) at GES DISC

Version 001 eng
  • Abstract
    This data set contains a series of land surface parameters simulated from the Noah 3.3 model in the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) Land Data Assimilation System (FLDAS). The data are in 0.10 degree resolution and range from January 2001 to the present. The temporal resolution is daily and spatial coverage is Southern Africa (37.9S, 6.0E, 6.4N, 54.6E). The files are in NetCDF format. This simulation was forced by combination of NCEP's Global Data Assimilation System (GDAS) data and NOAA CPC Africa Rainfall Estimation Algorithm v2 (RFE2) data. The simulation was initialized on 1 January 2001 using soil moisture and other state fields from a FLDAS/Noah model climatology for that day of the year.
