2015 ARM Best Estimate 2D Data Sets Available

Published: 18 June 2017
A plot from ARMBE2DGRID shows surface sensible (left) and latent (right) heat fluxes (unit: W/m2) from July 2015.

Data sets for ARM Best Estimate 2-dimensional Gridded Surface (ARMBE2DGRID) and ARM Best Estimate Station-based Surface (ARMBESTNS) are available now for year 2015.

The primary goal of these two data sets is to provide 2D spatial data of important surface variables to facilitate studies on precipitation, clouds, radiation, for example, which require high spatial and temporal observations.

Work to expand these data sets to longer periods continues. Previous efforts can be found in this announcement.

Feedback and use of the data are always welcomed. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Qi Tang or Shaocheng Xie. To access both data sets, please browse the ARM Data Archive. (Go here to create an account to download the data.)
