Information about dataset 44

Unqualified dataset name NORA10_wave
Full dataset name ADC/NORA10_wave
Metadata
abstract NORA10 is a combined atmospheric downscaling and wave hindcast based on the ERA‐40 reanalysis covering the Norwegian Sea, the North Sea, and the Barents Sea. The dataset covers the period September 1957 to present. The dynamic atmospheric downscaling is performed with the HIRLAM model, which provides winds to the wave model WAM. The wave model is run in two operations, consisting of a coarse 50 km model covering the North Atlantic forced with ERA‐40 winds and a nested 10–11 km resolution model forced with downscaled HIRLAM-winds. The hindcast is validated and well documented in Reistad, 2011. Data output is three-hourly, with the exception of a few atmospheric parameters given hourly.
