  • Abstract
    The monthly climatology 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 set comprises of 12 monthly files, each representing the monthly data averaged over 35 years from 1982 to 2016, based on the FLDAS Noah Land Surface Model L4 monthly 0.1 x 0.1 degree for Southern Africa (MERRA-2 and CHIRPS) V001 (FLDAS_NOAH01_C_SA_M_001) monthly data. The data are in 0.10 degree resolution and the spatial coverage is Southern Africa (37.9S, 6.0E, 6.4N, 54.6E). The files are in NetCDF format. More information about the monthly FLDAS can be found from the dataset landing page for FLDAS_NOAH01_C_SA_M_001 and the FLDAS README document.
