STARS Data Set

A data set has been build for the STARS project, containing satellite data, in situ observations and NWP data for the years 2002 -2011, called STARS-DAT. This data set is fundamental for most of the studies performed in STARS. In the STARS-DAT data set all data sources has been re-gridded to a common 2km polar stereographic projection, and data files are provided on NetCDF4 format. More details about the data set is available in the the STARS-DAT User Manual:
