CRU JRA: Collection of CRU JRA forcing datasets of gridded land surface blend of Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and Japanese reanalysis (JRA) data.
This is a collection of the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit (CRU) Japanese Reanalysis (JRA) data. The CRU JRA data are 6-hourly, land surface, gridded time series of ten meteorological variables produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA), and is intended to be used to drive models.
The dataset is constructed by combining data from the Japanese Reanalysis data produced by the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) and adjusted where possible to align with the CRU TS data (these 'ten meteorological variables' are not the same ten available from CRU TS).
The CRU JRA dataset is intended to be a replacement of the CRUNCEP forcing dataset. The CRU JRA dataset follows the style of Nicolas Viovy's original CRUNCEP dataset rather than that which is available from UCAR.
Dataset supports the following projects:
