FEWSNET Global LIS7 CHIRPS- PRELIM runs
Global LIS7 runs are using NOAH3.6 Land Surface Model (LSM) with 10km resolution. These runs are forced with CHIRPS-PRELIM precipitation and GDAS atmospheric forcing. The spatial extent of CHIRPS rainfall inputs is 50°S-50°N (Funk et al. 2015). For regions north and south of CHIRPS domain FLDAS uses GDAS precipitation inputs. LSM is run are restarted from CHIRPS-FINAL FLDAS global runs. Latitudinal extent is 60S to 90N and logitudinal extent is -180o to +180o.
