Data for The Orinoco Low-level Jet and the Cross-Equatorial Moisture Transport over tropical South America: Lessons from seasonal WRF simulations



This dataset contains results from WRF simulations over northern South America. The Orinoco Low-Level Jet (OLLJ) and the Cross-Equatorial Moisture Transport are important circulation structures of the climate of tropical South America. We explore the sensitivity of the OLLJ and cross-equatorial transport to the representation of surface fluxes and turbulence by using two different Land Surface Model (LSM) schemes (Noah and CLM) and three Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) schemes (YSU, QNSE and MYNN).
