A high-resolution dataset for lower atmospheric process studies over the Tibetan Plateau from 1981 to 2020

A high-resolution dataset for lower atmospheric process studies over the Tibetan Plateau from 1981 to 2020

Meteorological elements of the dataset include the near-surface land-air exchange parameters, such as downward/upward longwave/shortwave radiation flux, momentum flux, sensible heat flux, latent heat flux, etc. In addition, the vertical distributions of 3-dimensional wind, temperature, humidity, and pressure from the surface to the tropopause are also included. Independent evaluations were conducted for the dataset by comparison between the observational data and the most recent ERA5 reanalysis data. The results demonstrate the accuracy and superiority of this dataset against reanalysis data, which provides great potential for future climate change research.

File naming and required software

File name: the data is stored in binary format, and the file name is "TPbigdata_yyyy-mm-dd.dat", where yyyy represents the year, mm represents the month, and dd represents the day.
Data reading method: All data share one data description file. Binary files in this dataset can be directly opened in Fortran. If you want to display them in a diagram, you can open them in GridS. The displayed grid file is the graphical representation of the binary file.
