Algorithms for atmospheric water balance method

  1. Jul 18, 2014 #1
    I want to estimate divergence of water vapor flux in atmosphere with NCEP/NCAR data
    I have the equations for that and i want the algorithms to implement it for NCEP/NCAR data.

    I have a paper with algorithms for ECMWF data. Can i take this? or it required new algorithms for my data

    Can you describe the differences between the data sets?

    You may need to change things related to data formatting or grid size.

    I know that ERA has biases in its cloud variables so you may want to be aware if there are any for water vapor that are corrected since ECMWF is more like model data.
