The Role of Katabatic Outflow in Maintaining the Upper Level Antarctic Winter Vortex
Entry ID: ASAC_692

Abstract: The data set associated with this project is a long simulation from a global climate model, with data saved every 6 hours. Also part of the simulated atmospheric data in the project is the results of sensitivity studies which were designed to assess the impact of changes in Antarctic katabatic flow. Among these are simulated data with enhanced surface friction, and with the removal of Antarctic ... View entire text
