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 xfhfe simulation which ran using the Met Office Unified Model (UM) at 4km horizontal resolution over the domain 40E-183E, 22S-22N which encompasses the Indian Ocean West Pacific Warm Pool. Cascade Warm Pool simulations are used to study the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), they also coincide with the Year of Tropical Convection.
