Dust Scenarios used by the LMD Mars General Circulation Model


We provide here synthetic dust scenarios, built using the multiannual climatology presented here, which are used as forcings by the LMD Mars Global Climate Model (GCM). The outputs of these GCM runs are used to generate the Mars Climate Database "climatology", "cold" and "warm" cases.

Data sets

The datasets (NetCDF files) contain daily values (over 669 sols of a Martian year) of IR (9.3 μm) absorption column dust optical depth at 610Pa, with a horizontal resolution of 5 degrees in longitude x 5 degrees in latitude.
