Short Name:

FLDAS Noah Land Surface Model L4 Global Monthly 0.1 x 0.1 degree (GDAS and CHIRPS-PRELIM) V001 (FLDAS_NOAH01_CP_GL_M) at GES DISC

This 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), adapted from Land Information System (LIS7). The dataset contains 28 parameters in a 0.10 degree spatial resolution and from January 2019 to present. The temporal resolution is monthly and the spatial coverage is global (60S, 180W, 90N, 180E). The simulation was forced by a combination of the Global Data Assimilation System (GDAS) data and Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station Preliminary (CHIRPS-PRELIM) 6-hourly rainfall data that has been downscaled using the NASA Land Data Toolkit, restarted from CHIRPS-FINAL of the previous month. The simulation was initialized on January 1, 2019 using soil moisture and other state fields from a FLDAS/Noah model climatology for that day of the year.
