Abstract

This study derives the large-scale forcing data for CRMs and SCMs using continuous Doppler radar, sounding, TOA and surface measurements from several recent tropical experiments including TEPPS, EPIC, LBA, JASMINE and KWAJEX. Hourly averaged wind, divergence and vertical motion profiles are derived from Doppler radar. They are combined with sounding, TOA and surface measurements to calculate the heat and moisture budgets using the constrained variational analysis method of Zhang and Lin (1997), which balances the column-integrated mass, heat and moisture budgets. Possible applications of the datasets will be discussed.
