GPCI Field Campaign
Model Intercomparison Datasets
GPCI is a working group of the GEWEX Cloud System Study (GCSS). Models and data are analyzed along a Pacific cross-section from stratocumulus, to cumulus and to deep convection.
- To evaluate models and observations in the (sub)tropics in terms of the atmospheric hydrologic cycle.
- To include 3D NWP/Climate models in the GCSS framework (SCM/LES/CRM have limitations).
- To utilize a new generation of satellite datasets (e.g. AIRS, CloudSat, GPS).
- To create a database of models and observations for future studies of the (sub)tropics.
A PDF presentation with the most recent results is available for download.
NOTICE: The data set with the original simulations from the GPCI models can be made available upon request & consideration. Please, contact Joao Teixeira, GPCI Coordinator (teixeira@@jpl.nasa.gov), and Sambingo Cardoso (sambingo@@ucar.edu) if you are interested in using any of those data or include results posted in this web page in a publication.
You may download all GPCI Model Intercomparison results in ASCII data file archive.
