Model output from the Weather Research and Forecasting model with water vapor tracers over Amazon and La Plata river basins



Model output dataset (6-hourly) from the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model simulations over South America with the added capability of water vapor tracers to track the moisture that originates over the Amazon and the La Plata river basins. The simulations were performed for the period 2003-2013 at 20-km horizontal resolution fully coupled with the Noah-MP land surface model. Limited number of original output variables sufficient for reproducing the analyses in papers that cite this dataset are included here. The attached wrfout_southamerica_readme.txt contains detailed information about the file format and variables. For the complete model dataset, contact
