Standard atmosphere dataset over the Tibetan Plateau (climatology from 1981-2020)

Standard atmosphere dataset over the Tibetan Plateau (climatology from 1981-2020)

The Tibetan Plateau Subregional Dynamical Downscaling Dataset-Standard Year (TPSDD-Standard) is a high spatial-temporal resolution gridded dataset for the study of land-air exchange processes and lower atmospheric structure over the entire Tibetan Plateau, taking into account the climatic characteristics of each subregion of the Tibetan Plateau. Based on the 500 hPa multi-year average of the geopotential height field over the Tibetan Plateau, the year (2014) with the largest pattern correlation coefficient with this geopotential height field is selected as the standard year, which means that it can roughly reflect the multi-year average status of the atmosphere over the Tibetan Plateau. The temporal resolution of this data is 1 hour and the spatial resolution is 5 km. Meteorological elements of the dataset include near-surface land-air exchange parameters such as downward/upward long-wave/short-wave radiation fluxes, sensible heat fluxes, latent heat fluxes, etc. In addition, the 3-dimensional vertical distribution of wind, temperature, humidity, and pressure from the surface to the top of the troposphere is also included. The dataset was independently evaluated by comparing the observed data with the latest ERA5 reanalysis data. The results demonstrate the accuracy and superiority of the dataset, which offers great potential for future climate change studies.

File naming and required software

File name: the data is stored in binary format, and the file name is TPbigdata_ HD_ yyyy-mm-dd. Dat, where yyyy represents the year, mm represents the month, and dd represents the day. All binary data share one CTL data description file.
Data reading method: all binary files in the dataset can be read by fortran program. If you want to display them in a diagram, you can open them with GrADS, or convert them to NetCDF format with CDO or NCL.
