Inventory of Arctic Rain on Snow Events: Meteorological and Surface Conditions, Version 1
Data set id:
This is the most recent version of these data.
This data set contains surface and upper air data from global atmospheric reanalysis, and passive microwave brightness temperatures for rain on snow events in the Arctic region between 1979 and the present. Data are subsetted temporally to the time period of each event and spatially to the region experiencing the event. The time ranges and spatial extents of these subsets have been chosen to show the development of each event at the synoptic scale.
