Abstract

Climatological model output used in Chiang et al. (2019), "Origins of East Asian Summer Monsoon Seasonality".

Usage Notes

There are two sets of data, corresponding to the 'Realistic' and 'Idealized' runs as listed in Table 1 of Chiang et al. (2019).  

All data are in tar files, sorted by variable.  Individual data files are in NetCDF format.

 

The 'Realistic' set are daily climatologies averaged over years 6-55 of the simulations, and with the following variables:

2D: Total precipitation (prect.tar), convective precipitation (precc.tar), and large-scale precipitation (precl.tar)

3D: Pressure vertical velocity (omega.tar), Specifc humidity (Q.tar), Zonal wind (U.tar), and Meridional wind (V.tar)

All variables contain data for the 'Full Plateau' and 'No Plateau' configurations.  In addition, there is data for the 'Thin Plateau' for V, and for the 25%, 50% and 75% Plateau for precc, precl and prect.

 

The 'Idealized' set are pentad climatologies averaged over years 6-35 of the simulations, and with the following variables:

2D: Total precipitation (aqua_prect.tar)

3D: Specifc humidity (aqua_Q.tar), Air temperature (aqua_T.tar), Geopotential height (aqua_Z3.tar), Zonal wind (aqua_U.tar), and Meridional wind (aqua_V.tar)

All variables contain data for the land only, land+Plateau, and Plateau only configurations.

 

Finally, the topographic boundary conditions used for the set of Realistic simulations are also given in topo
