This dataset contains WRF model output. There are three months of data: July 2012, July 2013, and January 2013. For each month, several simulations were made: A control and two lightning assimilation runs using different suppression techniques. For July 2012, and additional simulation was made with a third suppression technique. Please refer to the manuscript for a full description of each simulation. This dataset is not publicly accessible because: The files are too large. It can be accessed through the following means: The data can be accessed through NCC's tape archival storage system (ASM) or by contacting the author. Format: WRF model output for July 2012, July 2013, and January 2013.
