Data contributing to Zuidema et al., 2019: "Is summer African dust arriving earlier at Barbados? The updated long-term in-situ dust mass concentration time series from Ragged Point, Barbados and Miami, Florida”, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
Daily-resolved time series of surface dust mass concentrations gathered at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science in Miami, Florida from 1974 through December, 2018, and at Ragged Point, Barbados, from 193 through December, 2014, and primarily May-October of 2015-2018. The data were extracted from Whatman-41 filters sampling under pumped high-flow conditions. A fuller description of the sampling, data collection and analysis procedures can be found in Zuidema et al., 2019, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (https://doi.org/10.1175/BAMS-D-18-0083.1). The data are available as separate files for Miami and Barbados, in both Excel and netcdf format.
SAM model output files from A. Chandra, P. Zuidema, S. Krueger, A. Kochanski, S. P. de Szoeke and J. Zhang,2018: "Moisture distributions in tropical cold pools from equatorial Indian Ocean observations and cloud-resolving simulations”, J. Geophys. Res. - Atmos.

This data set contains two sets of cloud-resolving simulations using the System for Atmospheric Modeling (SAM - http://rossby.msrc.sunysb.edu/~marat/SAM.html) which contributed to the analysis found in Chandra et al., 2018, "Moisture distributions in tropical cold pools from equatorial Indian Ocean observations and cloud-resolving simulations”, Journal of Geophysical Research. The model output files were originally created by Adam Kochanski and Steve Krueger at the University of Utah. One simulation set is centered on Gan Island (0.65S, 73.15E), in the equatorial Indian Ocean, and the other simulation set is centered on the Research Ship Roger Revelle, stationed approximately 1000 km to the island’s east (0, 80E). The Gan Island simulations span 8-16 October and 18-25 December of 2011, while the Revelle simulations span 2 October - 1 November, 2011. They are five-minute output, from a doubly-periodic 256 km by 256 km domain with a one-km horizontal grid spacing and 67 vertical levels. The simulations incorporate a new turbulence closure named Simplified Higher Order Closure (SHOC) and a two-moment microphysical scheme (Morrison et al., 2005). More model description can be found in Chandra et al., 2018.
Data from: Optical depth and size characteristics of small coastal Florida cumuli from surface-based lidar and radiometer measurements
Data in this collection is from micro-pulse lidar (MPL) and near field of view (NFOV) radiometer from 20 Dec 2014 to 1 March 2015. The instruments are co-located and zenith-aligned. Measurements were recorded at the CAROb site (http://carob.rsmas.miami.edu/) located in the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science. The data in this collection is categorized as MPL and zenith radiometer data.
