SORBIT (Sampling along sun-synchronous satellite ORBITs)
Simulated device: arbitrary sun-synchronous orbiters (NADIR)
Contact: Patrick Jöckel (firstname.lastname@example.org)
arbitrary (namelist controlled), dimension (2D or 3D) depends on the variable; output of 2 global fields (2D or 3D) every 24 hours, one for ascending and one for descending branch
Minimum set of physical quantities:
Need for a special grid?
Are parameters given via namelist or have to be coded?
Are there special requirements to the input quantities?
Documentation: yes (Section 5.4 in the below mentioned paper)
Models for application: EMAC, COSMO/MESSy, MECO(n)
Suitable for MESSy?: part of MESSy
Format of input data: not applicable
Format of output data: netCDF
Computational costs: depends on the number of orbits and variables
