# Merra Intercomparisons Notes

## 1 Files Available

I want to collect the locations (and process if they don't exist) MERRA, AIRS, CrIS, IASI, and CrIS-hires clear ocean rtp and stats files for Jan 18-20, 2016. The table below is my present understanding of what exists (or what I can find).

Table 1: Existing rtp and stat files. r = rtp files, s = stat files
Model AIRS CrIS IASI CrIS-HR
ECMWF r r? r
MERRA r,s r,s s r

Here is a listing of files I have found (not complete in that all 3-4 Jan 2016 days are not necessarily listed, just one of those days) that we used to make up the table below. These symbolic links are located on maya at /home/strow/Lists/Merra_vs_ECMWF/
