(2020) <p>The dataset is composed of 2424 netCDF (.nc) files containing multi-wavelength (λ = 440, 550, and 870 nm) particle light absorption and extinction coefficients for the year 2010. For λ = 550 there are, in addition, files for different values of relative humidity, for dry (RH = 0 %) and wet conditions (RH ranging from 40 to 85 %). Total size of dataset: 28 GB.</p> <p> The ten earth system models included in the database are:<p> 1. Community Atmosphere Model version 5 (CAM5)<p> 2. Aerosol Two-dimensional bin module for foRmation and Aging Simulation (CAM-ATRAS)<p> 3. Georgia Institute of Technology-Goddard Global Ozone Chemistry Aerosol Radiation and Transport model (GEOS-GOCART)<p> 4. GEOS-Chem model (GEOS-Chem)<p> 5. Tracer Model (TM5)<p> 6. Oslo chemistry-transport model (OsloCTM3)<p> 7. European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecast - Integrated Forecasting20 System model (ECMWF-IFS) run in the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service configuration<p> 8. Global general circulation model ECHAM6 with the SALSA module (ECHAM6.3-SALSA2.0)<p> 9. CAM5.3-Oslo model (CAM-OSLO)<p> 10. Goddard Earth Observing System with the MERRA Aerosol Reanalysis (GEOS-MERRAero)</p> <p> For detailed information about data for each model, please see the associated README file.</p> <p>This work is part of the AeroCom INSITU project and is a collaboration between:</p> <p>Stockholm University, Sweden U.S. Department of Energy, USA<p> and<p> Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Studies, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA Andalusian Institute for Earth System Research, University of Granada, Granada, Spain European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, Reading, UK NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, USA University of Maryland Baltimore County, Maryland, USA GESTAR/Universities Space Research Association, Columbia, USA Dipartimento di Scienze Fisiche e Chimiche, Universita’ degli Studi dell’Aquila, L’Aquila, Italy Centre of Excellence CETEMPS, Università degli Studi dell’Aquila, L’Aquila, Italy Norwegian Meteorological Institute, Oslo, Norway Finnish Meteorological Institute, Kuopio, Finland Center for International Climate Research, Oslo, Norway Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, De Bilt, Netherlands Earth Systems Analysis and Modeling, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland, WA, USA.</p>
