Japanese 25-year Reanalysis Plan This is a execution plan of JRA-25 project that was forged before implementation of the project. The actual JRA-25 project differs slightly from this plan.
Dear zhugf, I suggest you use JRA-55 or one of the other newer reanalyses, though precipitation in general is difficult for most reanalysis systems and should be consider less reliable than a variable that is assimilated, such as temperature or wind. See the list of reanalyses and links to data access for each at http://reanalyses.org/atmosphere/overview-current-reanalyses. A quick plotter for several datasets can be found at the Web-based reanalysis intercomparison tool https://reanalyses.org/atmosphere/writ. See a list of other tools that may be useful at https://reanalyses.org/atmosphere/tools, and a list of data access possibilities from many different sites at https://reanalyses.org/atmosphere/how-obtainplotanalyze-data. best wishes,
I need to reference in my master's thesis.
