A 51-year hydrological reanalysis between 1948 and 1998 over the
continental US was recently completed at Climate Prediction Center
of NCEP, NOAA. The project used Noah land surface model (LSM) with
forcing data regridded from NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis data and the new
CPC daily and hourly precipitation data. The best available
orography, soil and vegetation types, etc. are used as the boundary
conditions of this study. The output fields include all components
of energy, water mass balance, snow cover and depth, and 4 layers of
soil temperature, moisture (both liquid and frozen) below the
ground. Three types of data files are archived in this dataset. They
include the restart files, the forcing fields to run the Noah Land
Surface Model, and the output files from the 1948-1998 runs.
The daily restarting files and the hourly forcing fields are stored
on NCAR's High Performance Storage System (HPSS) only.
