Tropical Cyclones in Global Storm-Resolving Models

This dataset contains information about the tropical cyclones simulated by nine global storm-resolving models (global storm-resolving models are global models with a horizontal resolution of < 5 km). The dataset contains two distinct data sources: (1) track files, which contain information about TC position, intensity, and size. (2) gridded data files with radius-height composites of the TC dynamic and thermodynamic structure. There is one track file and one gridded data file for each model. The overall dataset is part of the global storm-resolving model intercomparison project "DYAMOND" (Stevens et al. 2019,, and has been used in a study that is currently under review.
