tavgM_2d_lnd_Nx: MERRA 2D IAU Diagnostic, Land Only States and Diagnostics, Monthly Mean 0.667 x 0.5 degree V5.2.0 (MATMNXLND) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: November 5, 2019

The MATMNXLND or tavgM_2d_lnd_Nx data product is the MERRA Data Assimilation System 2-Dimensional land surface diagnostic that is time averaged single-level at the native resolution. It is a history file that is produced from the GCM during the corrector segment of the IAU cycle. All collections from this group are at reduced horizontal resolution. MERRA, or the Modern Era Retrospective-analysis for Research and Application, is a NASA reanalysis for the satellite era (30 years 1979-current) using the Goddard Earth Observing System Data Assimilation System Version 5 (GEOS-5 DAS).

This data product contains 2-dimensional fields that do not vary during the reanalysis. The data are on the GEOS-5 native 540 x 361 grid with 0.667 degree longitude x 0.5 degree latitude resolution. Data are archived in the HDF-EOS2 (Grid) format, based on HDF4.
