The data are results of the numerical simulation of the near-surface jet in the atmospheric surface layer across oceanic fronts, described in the paper by Deng, Zhao, Wang, and Shen (submitted to JGR-Atmosphere). The data are shared to follow the common Enabling FAIR data Project guidelines as required by the journal.

Simulation data used for figures in "Numerical study of near-surface jet in the atmospheric surface layer over oceanic fronts" including the mean velocity profiles, the turbulent variance profiles, the vortex structures, the streamwise momentum flux, the surface shear stress, and the local gradient Richardson number, etc. The data was generated and written by our in-house codes. Its format matches the requirement of the software Tecplot, and hence users can open the data using Tecplot.
