  • The ressource describes the dataset obtained by deploying the GAMIC GMWR-25-DP RADAR in the South of Reunion Island, in Saint Joseph.

  • The ressource describes the dataset obtained by deploying the GAMIC GMWR-25-DP RADAR in the north of Mahé Island, in Seychelles.

  • Le radar BASTA est un radar nuage (95GHz) dédié à l’étude des nuages et du brouillard. Le radar mesure l’énergie rétrodiffusée par les hydrométéores, cette énergie peut donc être reliée à la quantité d’eau contenue dans le nuage (liquide et glace). Il fonctionne en routine quotidiennement sur le site de l’observatoire du Maïdo, sur l'Ile de La Réunion. Le radar BASTA Réunion a été calibré au LATMOS avant son installation à la Réunion. Ce jeu de données est au format niveau L0. Paramètre principal: Profil vertical de réflectivité radar, mesure du décalage Doppler. Contexte de la mesure: observation routine.

  • This dataset provides the processed CFH water vapor radiosoundings performed for 5 consecutive nights at the Maïdo Observatory (21.08°S, 55.38°E) on Réunion Island during the period 20-25 January 2022 following the eruption of the Hunga Tonga volcano on 15 January. Réunion Island is in the Southwest Indian Ocean and holds one of the very few atmospheric observatories in the subtropical Southern Hemisphere.

    ReefTEMPS is a network created by the IRD, initially covering some twenty territories and island states in the South, South-West and West Pacific. ReefTEMPS-OI is the Indian Ocean version. The network uses temperature, pressure, salinity and other coastal observables to monitor climate change and its effects on coral reefs and their resources over the long term. ReefTEMPS is part of the French national federative Research Infrastructure for coastal ocean and seashore observations named IR I-LICO, accredited as a National Observation Service (SNO) by the CNRS-INSU Ocean-Atmosphere Commission. ReefTEMPS is operated by ENTROPIE since 2019. Previously, it was created and led by GOPS (a consortium of research observatories in the South Pacific) during the period 2010-2017, then coordinated by UMR LEGOS in 2018. ReefTEMPS-OI, its Indian Ocean version, is operated by OSU-Réunion since 2020.

  • Since 2012, 3 lidars from the Atmospheric Physics Observatory of La Réunion (OPAR) have been performing aerosol profile measurements at the Maïdo observatory site, located at 2160 meters to the west of the island of La Réunion. These profiles are obtained at several wavelengths, 355nm and 532nm, and there are also depolarized channels at 532nm. The data from these 3 lidars are processed in two stages: initially, the data are manually cleaned of disturbed profiles, either by atmospheric effects, such as the passage of clouds, or by electronic effects like noise. They are then summed over the night. This is the L1b level, and the data are available in the Matlab format (.mat). Subsequently, the data are processed to convert from a profile of received photon number to a profile of aerosol extinction and scattering. The methodology used is based on the Klett calculation at one wavelength. This is the L2b level, and the data are available in the NetCDF format (.nc) with the NDACC convention in the choice of variable names. Therefore, the data are distributed across 6 directories, 2 levels of processing for each lidar. The raw data from the instrument (called L0) are in a proprietary format, the Licel format, and are not accessible in open access, only via FTP with restricted access.

  • This dataset encompasses model outputs generated by the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) regional climate model. A high-resolution (~1km) downscaling simulation was performed over two tropical islands, Reunion and Mauritius, situated in the South-West Indian Ocean (SWIO), with initial and boundary conditions provided by the ERA5 reanalysis with a global resolution of 0.25° × 0.25°. The simulation used three nested domains sequentially configured with spatial resolutions of 9, 3, and 1km, respectively, with a downscaling ratio of 3. The physical configurations of this simulation were determined through previous modeling studies and sensitivity tests. The published simulation data currently covers a period of 10 years, starting from 1991 (with the possibility to be extended to 30 years). Over 60 output variables were selected for publication with open access, including those related to the intermittent energy resources (e.g., surface solar radiation and its direct/diffuse components, wind speed/direction at multiple vertical levels, and precipitation, of interest for the run-off-river hydropower), as well as the widely used climatic/meteorological variables (e.g., temperature, pressure, humidity, etc.) at a temporal resolution varying from a day up to 30 minutes. All the data are available through an open-access data server, where an intelligent algorithm is applied to simplify the download process for data users. For the first time, a long-term, high-resolution climate/meteorological dataset covering Reunion and Mauritius has been simulated and published as open-access data, yielding substantial benefits to studies on climate modeling, weather forecasting, and even those related to climate change in the SWIO region. In particular, this dataset will enable a better understanding of the temporal and spatial characteristics of intermittent climate-related energy resources, consequently facilitating their implementation towards a green and low-carbon future.

  • Le projet a pour objectif d'améliorer le signal de la pluie détectée par les géophones en comparant les données météorologiques d'un disdromètre, d'un pluviomètre et de 3 géophones afin d'extraire des données des sismographes pour mieux comprendre le transport sédimentaire issu du réseau sismologique installé dans la rivière des pluies et la rivière du Mat. Les objectifs sont : 1) déterminer les caractéristiques sismiques de la pluie sur le site de mesures 2) A terme, comprendre le déclenchement des éboulements et glissements liés aux pluies A court terme, ce projet devrait aussi permettre de : 1) comprendre pour un même type de pluie l'influence de sols de rugosités différentes sur les signaux enregistrés par les sismomètres 2) intégrer/contraindre pour un même type de sol l'influence de types de pluies différentes sur les enregistrements des sismomètres 3) déterminuer l'influence des tailles des gouttes et du nombre de gouttes (indications données par le disdromètre) sur le signal sismique
