AFES–LETKF experimental ensemble reanalysis 2 produced on the Earth Simulator.

Model Characteristics

AFES (AGCM for the Earth Simulator) is run at a resolution of T119L48 (about 100 km in the horizontal and 48 layers in the vertical). The PREPBUFR complied by the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and archived at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) is used for the observational data and assimilated using the LETKF (local ensemble transform Kalman filter).
