FLDAS Noah Land Surface Model L4 monthly 0.1 x 0.1 degree for Western Africa (MERRA-2 and CHIRPS) V001 (FLDAS_NOAH01_C_WA_M) at GES DISC

This data set contains a series of land surface parameters simulated from the Noah 3.3 model in the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) Land Data Assimilation System (FLDAS). The data are in 0.10 degree resolution and range from January 1982 to present. The temporal resolution is monthly and the spatial coverage is Western Africa (5.3N, 18.7W, 17.7N, 25.9E). The files are in NetCDF format.

This simulation was forced by a combination of the Modern-Era Retrospective analysis for Research and Applications version 2 (MERRA-2) and Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station data (CHIRPS).

The simulation was initialized on 1 January 1982 using soil moisture and other state fields from a FLDAS/Noah model climatology for that day of the year.
