MERRA2 Hindcasts

Hindcasts of the period 1980-present using MERRA2 meteorology are nearly complete. Output is available. One simulation has 1x1.25 degree horizontal resolution, the other has 2x2.5 resolution and uses the CCMI emissions and boundary conditions.

 

HindcastMR2-CCMI (2 degree) MERRA-2 1980-2016

status: completed

CCMI emissions, IGAC v2 SAD

Code tag information - HMR2_2ndPass_Intel17

Updated strat-trop mechanism with 119 species, JPL15 rates. Updated code with Luke Oman's bug fix for all version of fastj/jx/etc.  Hourly surface data for CO, NO, NO2, O3, and temperature available. For more information about this model version and inputs see
