Good Morning All,
I may be able to get access the ECMWF ERA Interm data set for WRF EMS
model initialization. This
data set covers a similar period (1981-current) as that of the
Reanalysis II, but at a better spatial resolution
(1.5 degree Vs. 5 degree). I've already tested the data with the EMS and
You can manually download the data from:
but the data sets can be very large. I would eventually make then
available through the
personal tile data servers.
The files would only be available to NWS and collaborators for research
and training purposes only,
so I could not make these data available to commercial groups.
Any publications would have to site the ECMWF.
Is there any interest in these data before I start requesting disk space
for 10Tbs of data?
