Abstract

This dataset consists of model outputs from the Control, Onset and Development experiments. Each experiment has six ensembles which were integrated for three years. 6-hourly instantaneous surface (1000hPa) zonal and meridional wind speed (m/s) between 31°S-31°N is recorded in uv1000hPa_{Control, Onset, Development}_ens{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}.dat. 6-hourly accumulated precipitation (mm) between 32°S-32°N is stored in precip_{ Control, Onset, Development}_ens{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}.dat. Note the precip.*dat records accumulated rainfall for the past 6 hours. The missing data is recorded as nan.

Methods

Wind speed information carried by Lagrangian parcels is averaged in 2°-longitude by 2°-latitude grids in the tropics. Precipitation information is averaged in 4°-longitude by 4°-latitude grids in the tropics.
