Mississippi Basin Averaged Daily ECMWF Reanalysis Files (1985-1993)

This dataset contains daily data from 1985 to 1993 for the energy and water budgets for the sub-basins of the Mississippi (the Arkansas-Red, the upper Missouri, the upper Mississippi, the Ohio, and the lower Mississippi and Tennessee Rivers) from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) reanalysis ?ERA15?, and from observations of precipitation and streamflow. The original ECMWF model data were computed on-line with an hourly time scale, but have been summed or averaged up to the daily timescale, because the model has significant precipitation errors in the diurnal timescale which largely disappear on the daily timescale (Betts et al, 1998, 1999). This also reduces the data volume by a factor of 24. See the README file for more details.
