Abstract

Cascade was a NERC funded consortium project to study organized convection and scale interactions in the tropical atmosphere using large domain cloud system resolving model simulations. This dataset contains data from the xeule simulation which ran using the Met Office Unified Model (UM) at 40km horizontal resolution over an idealised equatorial domain of about 8000x4000km. Cascade Idealised simulations are used to study warm pool convection and equatorial waves.

Data lineage:

Data were generated using the Met Office Unified Model (UM) at 40km horizontal resolution over an idealised equatorial domain of about 8000x4000km. Cascade data has been converted to CF-netCDF by the cascade team using one of two tools: UKMOIDL or xconv, then passed on to the BADC for archiving.

Data Quality:
See dataset associated documentation.
File Format:
Data are netCDF formatted
