Progress continues on the migration of the NDACC DHF from its original home at NOAA's Climate Prediction Center (CPC) to its new home at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). New this month is the availability of the NCEP temperature and height extraction tool on the public LaRC NDACC DHF (https://www-air.larc.nasa.gov/miss
See the following notification from the SPARC International Project Office potentially useful to the NDACC Community:
"In a comprehensive review, the SPARC S-RIP activity has conducted a coordinated intercomparison of reanalysis data sets with respect to key diagnostics. The results can be used to provide guidance on the appropriate use of reanalysis products in scientific studies of relevance to SPARC and beyond.
Plans for the 2021 NDACC Steering Committee annual meeting are underway. Originally scheduled to take place at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, MD, the meeting has been changed to a virtual format because of ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. The meeting will take place the week of 13-17 September 2021. As with the 2020 meeting, Martine De Mazière and BIRA-IASB have
The simulation has been rerun and new GMI CTM 2020 files are available for FTIR, Lidar, Sonde, and Dobson sites. Due to a peculiar error, all model inputs after May 4, 2020 had been flipped by 180o longitude! Please replace any 2020 file you currently have with a new one!!!
As presented at recent Steering Committee Meetings the NDACC DHF has been transitioning from service at NOAA/CPC to NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). In the Fall 2020 meeting we noted that the DHF at LaRC was running in mirror mode, with all files running through the format/ingest codes. Routine checking of database listings has confirmed that all files accepted at LaRC and at NOAA/CPC have been in sync.
