MERRA-2 AMIP data (M2AMIP) now available

05.02.2018
The GMAO is now providing MERRA-2 AMIP data (M2AMIP) a 10-member GCM experiment based on the climate forcing configuration used in MERRA-2. All modeling features in the model are identical to MERRA-2, except for the lack of observational analysis, and provides the model's realization of present day climate. Most MERRA-2 variables are available. For one member, hourly data have been preserved, otherwise the 10 members are monthly data, and include an ensemble mean.

GMAO continues to provide support for ASPIRE

Overview

The Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) works to maximize the impact of satellite observations in climate, weather and atmospheric composition prediction using comprehensive global models and data assimilation. To achieve this goal, the GMAO develops models and assimilation systems, generates products to support NASA instrument teams and the NASA Earth science program, and undertakes scientific research to inform system development pathways.

Assimilation systems have been developed for the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface. GMAO's long-term goal is an integrated Earth system model and assimilation system that treats the individual components in a more coupled and interactive manner. GMAO works within numerous national and international collaborations to support its mission.
