River basin budgets from ERA-40
In this preprint of a semina at ECMWF, hourly river basinscale budgets are analyzed from ERA40 for the Mississippi, Mackenzie and Amazon rivers for 1990-1992. For the Mississippi comparisons are made with ERA15 and basin averaged observations. For the Mackenzie, comparisons are made with MAGS data.
A processed dataset is available for these river basins from the author for ERA-40 and ERA-Interim
