Acronym
WaVaCurIP
Project
WaVaCurIP (Hydrological cycle over the Iberian Peninsula, precipitation forecast.)
Summary
These data are made available as part of paper: S. J. Gonzalez-Roji, J. Saenz, G. Ibarra-Berastegi, J. Diaz de Argandona (2018) Moisture balance over the Iberian Peninsula according to a regional climate model, Journal of Geophysical Research 123(2):708-729. The dataset holds selected postprocessed files that allow to reproduce all the results in the paper.
An analysis of the atmospheric branch of the hydrological cycle by means of a 15 km resolution numerical integration performed using Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) nested in ERA Interim is presented. Two WRF experiments covering the period 2010–2014 were prepared. The first one (N) was configured as in standard numerical downscaling experiments. The second one (D), with the same parameterizations, included a step of 3DVAR data assimilation every 6 h.
Experiment D:
-windowed-D-AI: Analysis increments (T2, Q2), 2010-2014 for the D experiment
-windowed-wavacurip4paper-D: Netcdf files corresponding to experiment D (using 3DVAR assimilation) and years 2010-2014 holding 3-hourly outputs from the run after selecting the window covering the Iberian Peninsula.
Experiment N:
-windowed-wavacurip4paper-N: Netcdf files corresponding to experiment N (no data assimilation) and years 2010-2014 holding 3-hourly outputs from the run after selecting the window covering the Iberian Peninsula
