DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

The S14 retrospecitive meteorological forcing dataset (S14FD) offers daily data of 11 climatic variables over the globe from 1958 to 2013. The data over the sea and Antarctica are not bias-corrected (i.e., the raw data of the JRA-55 reanalysis were used), whereas those over the land are bias-corrected. Variables include daily mean 2m air temperature (tave2m, °C), daily maximum 2m air temperature (tmax2m, °C), daily minimum 2m air temperature (tmin2m, °C), daily total precipitation (precsfc, mm d-1), daily mean downward shortwave radiation flux (dswrfsfc, W m-2), daily mean downward longwave radiation flux (dlwrfsfc, W m-2), daily mean 2m relative humidity (rh2m, %), daily mean 2m specific humidity (spfh2m, kg kg-1), daily mean 2m vapor pressure (vap2m, hPa), daily mean 10m wind speed (wind10m, m s-1) and daily mean surface pressure (pressfc, hPa).

DATA PROCESSING

Data Processing (1)

General Explanation of the data producer's knowledge about the lineage of a dataset

S14FD retrospective meteorological forcing dataset is based based on JRA-55 reanalysis data.

USE CONSTRAINTS

Data Policy by Data Provider

The reference (Iizumi et al., 2017) should be cited when the dataset is used.

Data Policy for Project

Data Integration and Analysis System

The terms of data use of data providers take first priority over the DIAS data usage policy. In the event a data provider has not established terms of use, the following DIAS project data terms of use apply.

1. Users shall prioritize and abide by terms of use stipulated by a data provider in the event such exist

2. The use of DIAS data sets is limited to research and educational purposes [*1]

3. Users shall not modify the content of DIAS data sets

4. Users shall not provide the content of DIAS data sets to third parties

5. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall cite in parenthesis the text given as the data citation

6. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall submit a copy of the work (an offprint in the case of a paper, or a copy of the lecture summary in the case of an oral or poster presentation) to the DIAS office below

[*1] Data sets whose commercial usage are allowed under the data policy by data provider will be also allowed to be used commercially as DIAS data sets, after ongoing preparation works have been completed. Please contact the DIAS Office for more details.
