    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This dataset contains the tracks and intensities of low pressure system (LPS) in the global tropics (35&amp;ordm;S-35&amp;ordm;N), as identified in five atmospheric reanalyses (ERA5, ERA-Interim, JRA55, MERRA2, and CFSR) using the algorithm described in the paper titled&amp;nbsp;&lt;strong&gt;Assessing historical variability of South Asian monsoon lows and depressions with an optimized tracking algorithm&lt;/strong&gt;.&amp;nbsp; Tracking of LPS was performed using an automated Lagrangian pointwise feature tracker, TempestExtremes (Ullrich &amp;amp; Zarzycki, 2017), with criteria chosen to best match a subjectively analyzed LPS dataset while minimizing disagreement&amp;nbsp; between four atmospheric reanalyses. A full description of the algorithm and dataset is described in the preprint *(&lt;a href="https://doi.org/10.1029/2020JD032977"&gt;https://doi.org/10.1029/2020JD032977&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Files:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Header.txt&lt;/strong&gt;: contains the names of columns of the LPS dataset files&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;LPS_Global_ERA5.dat&lt;/strong&gt;: LPS track file for ERA5, 1979-2019, hourly resolution&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;LPS_Global_ERA-Interim.dat&lt;/strong&gt;: LPS track file for ERA-Interim, 1979-2018, six-hourly resolution&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;LPS_Global_JRA55.dat&lt;/strong&gt;: LPS track file for JRA55, 1958-2019, six-hourly resolution&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;LPS_Global_CFSR.dat&lt;/strong&gt;: LPS track file for CFSR, 1979-2010, six-hourly&amp;nbsp;resolution&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;LPS_Global_MERRA2.dat&lt;/strong&gt;: LPS track file for MERRA2, 1980-2019, three-hourly resolution&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Script:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Run_tempest_lps.sh&lt;/strong&gt;: TempestExtremes script to track LPS in reanalysis dataset.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Additionally, four python scripts are available to subset the dataset:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ol&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Python_Moist_LPS_heat_low.py&lt;/strong&gt;: Python script to create two separate files for&amp;nbsp; moist LPS and heat lows&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Python_Low_Depression.py&lt;/strong&gt;: Python script to create two separate files for monsoon lows and monsoon depressions&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Python_Region.py&lt;/strong&gt;: Python script to create a separate file for a region&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Python_Season.py&lt;/strong&gt;: Python script to create a separate file for a season&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ol&gt;
