Abstract

The Africa LAM Dataset is a collection of data outputs from a high resolution Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) Limited Area Model over Africa (the Africa LAM), developed by the Met Office. Data is available for the period 2010 to September 2013. Data covering the period Jan 2010 to mid-March 2011 are from the 20km 38L model configuration while data from mid-March 2011 to 11th September 2013 are higher resolution from the 12km 70L model configuration. This dataset is access restricted to the academic research community only.

Process overview

This dataset was generated by the computation detailed below.
Title Met Office Africa Limited Area L38 Model (Africa-LAM) deployed on Met Office supercomputer (Exeter)
Abstract This computation involved: Met Office Africa Limited Area L38 Model (Africa-LAM) deployed on Met Office supercomputer (Exeter). The Africa Limited Area Model is a configuration of the Met Office Unified Model, which is a non-hydrostatic finite difference model with height as the vertical coordinate. It uses the full equations with virtually no approximations. This is the L38 configuration.
