Tropical Cyclone Along-track Potential Intensity (and Derived Quantities) for Six Ocean Basins from Three Reanalyses, 1980-2016

Daniel Gilford; Allison Wing; Shannon Shields

Supporting derived data for Shields et al. (2020, GRL)

Derived tropical cyclone potential intensities and associated variables across the North Atlantic (NA), Eastern North Pacific (EP), North Indian (NI), South Indian (SI), South Pacific (SP), and Western North Pacific (WP) ocean basins, from MERRA2, ERA-I, and MERRA2 with SSTs replaced by HadISSTs. All files are netcdf format, organized by basin, with suffixes "m", "h", and "e" on data variables for MERRA2, MERRA2-HadISSTs, and ERA-I, respectively.

When using this data, please include the citation:

Potential intensities calculated with the Bister and Emanuel (2002) algorithm (pcmin.m) by Kerry Emanuel (revised by Daniel Gilford), available freely at: ftp://texmex.mit.edu/pub/emanuel/TCMAX
