Visitors to the site can view how atmospheric pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and ozone, spread around the globe. This is made possible through the use of model systems developed to enable global chemical weather forecasts.
Provides access to predicted data and results such as ocean surface temperature and sea surface height around Japan, calculated by near-operational ocean forcasting model combined with satellite and in-situ data.
We have been investigating oceanic and atmospheric processes responsible for tropical air-sea coupled climate phenomena, mostly using a high-resolution coupled model (SINTEX-F) in addition to available observations and stand-alone ocean/atmosphere model results. Here, we introduce our research activities and some of the recent results.
ALERA is an experimental atmospheric reanalysis dataset, which is
produced on the Earth Simulator under the collaboration among the Japan
Meteorological Agency (JMA), Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and
Technology (JAMSTEC), and Chiba Institute of Science (CIS).
