KNMI trajectories for CLAIRE ground stations

(Cooperative LBA Airborne Regional Experiment)



10-day backward trajectories were calculated for 3 stations:
Trajectory numberStationtrajectory colour coordinates
1Alliance green 305.1 E 5.9 N
2Sipaliwini dark blue 303.867 E 2.033 N
3Petit Saut red 306.833 E 4.917 N

The 3-D (u, v, dp/dt) wind from ECMWF analyses was used to calculated the trajectories.
The trajectories were calculated for 5 different end pressures:

The results are presented in gif format.
3 numbers at the beginning of each backward trajectory indicate: trajectory number, end pressure and start pressure (hPa).
There are marks (asterisks) on the trajectories every 2 days at 18 GMT (15 LT Surinam).
There is description of the format of the trajectory data files.
