This dataset contains the Matlab files of the processed data presented in the manuscript "The intermittency of wind-driven sand transport" by Comola F., J. F. Kok, M. Chamecki, and R. L. Martin. The study draws on extensive field measurements and numerical simulations of wind-driven sand transport to demonstrate the importance of accounting for saltation intermittency in mass flux parameterizations. The dataset contains two sets of Matlab files: the first set consists of "Oceano_processed_S1.mat", "Jerico_processed_S1.mat", and "Rancho_processed_S1.mat", which contain the post-processed dataset at Oceano, California, Jericoacoara, Brazil, and Rancho Guadalupe, California. The data contained in these files were used to generate Figures 1 and 2 of the manuscript. The second set consists of "Meteoblue_processed_oceano.mat", "Meteoblue_processed_jerico.mat", and "Meteoblue_processed_rancho.mat". These files contain the post-processed Meteoblue climate simulation dataset that wasused to generate Figure 3 and 4 of the manuscript.
