FLDAS Noah Land Surface Model L4 Global Monthly Climatology 0.1 x 0.1 degree (MERRA-2 and CHIRPS) V001 (FLDAS_NOAH01_C_GL_MC) at GES DISC

The monthly climatology dataset contains a series of land surface parameters simulated from the Noah 3.6.1 model in the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) Land Data Assimilation System (FLDAS). The dataset 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 Global Monthly 0.1 x 0.1 degree (MERRA-2 and CHIRPS) V001 (FLDAS_NOAH01_C_GL_M_001) monthly data. The data are in 0.10 degree resolution and the spatial coverage is global (60S, 180W, 90N, 180E). The files are in netCDF format. More information about the monthly FLDAS can be found from the dataset landing page for FLDAS_NOAH01_C_GL_M_001 and the FLDAS README document. Since the values in the data sets do not represent the fluxes over open water, a water body mask needs to be applied to set the data values over inland water to null. The MOD44W MODIS Water Mask is the standard land/sea mask for FLDAS, and is available for download through the LDAS project home page.
