Meso scale Compatible Inputs for WRF

IRS-P6 AWiFS derived gridded land use/land cover (LU/LC) data over Indian region as input to mesoscale models (MM5 and WRF).So far 25 land use/land cover categories of USGS derived global coverage with different resolutions data are used to run mesoscale models. IRSP6 AWiFS derived LU/LC data with 56m basic resolution has been scaled to 5, 2 minute & 30 second resolutions. Indian region of USGS data is replaced with AWiFS derived data and made compatible to MM5 & WRF model.

The resultant product is a global USGS LU/LC data with the Indian region replaced by the 56m resolution AWiFS based LU/LC adopted for mesoscale models, which is more accurate and updated at annual basis for the time period 2004-2005 to 2012-2013 (9 Cycles). Meso scale compatible LULC inputs for WRF model for the years 2005-06 to 2015-16 in the spatial resolutions of 30 second, 2 min and 5 min are hosted on Bhuvan-LULC-WRF .
