  • IFS cycle 38R2
  • Coupled to Mozart V3.5
  • MACCity anthropogenic emissions - scaled over North America and Europe
  • GFASv1.0 fire emissions
  • IFS model resolution T255L60
  • CTM resolution 1.125 degrees x 1.125 degrees, L60
  • analysis resolution T159/T95, using 12h 4D-Var and VarBC
  • time period 20121001 -
  • Blacklist: black_ds_macc_nrt_38r2
  • branch: stj_CY38R2_MACC_esuite

Changes introduced during production affecting the quality of the products

real date exp date description of change
20130614 2012100100 Start of e-suite
20130619 2012110800 Change to MLS V3.4. Before this date MLS V2 were assimilated.
20130621 2012112312 Bugfix in MOPITT observation operator corrected. No immediate imapct, because MOPITT assimialtion will only start after 2012121900
201306 2012121900 Begin of assimilation of MOPITT V5 data. From 20121001-20121218 only IASI CO data were assimilated in fwu0.
201306 2012121900 No MLS data used between 2012121900-2013010618.

2013012000 Error in OSTIO ice product for sst analysis. Set LFGCHECK to false for the 2013012000 and 2013012100 cycles.
20130715 2013052800 No SBUV/2 NOAA-19 data used between 2013050912-2013052800. By mistake, 21L SBUV/2 data have been  removed in fetchobs since they were included in the operational reo3 file on 2013050912. This has now been rectified and the data are being used again since 2013052800.
20130722 2013072200 Change to fetchobs for SMHI ice data
20130731 2013073100 Start monitoring IASI CO from Metop-B.
20130924 2013092400 Start monitoring GOME-2 NO2 and SO2 from Metop-B
20131003 2013100300 Blacklist MLS O3 because Aura LANCE is continuing to experience data-related processing failures and the number of data received is greatly reduced.
