CPC .25x.25 Daily US Unified Precipitation High resolution gridded precipitation over the US (from station data) for 1948 to 2006 extending to the present for a real-time version. Catalog N/A
GFS Model Output A dataset of historical weather forecasts generated with a fixed numerical model. Daily forecasts are comprised of a 15 day, 15-member ensemble and include surface and pressure level variables. N/A N/A
ICOADS Global surface marine data from 1800 to near the present summarized in monthly gridded formats (2°x2° boxes, or 1°x1° boxes from 1960 forward), and offering a variety of statistics. Catalog N/A
Kaplan SST Gridded global SST anomalies from 1856-present derived from UK Met Office SST data which has had sophisticated statistical techniques applied to it to fill in gaps. Catalog rss feed
MSU Two Microwave Sounding Unit tropospheric temperatures and daily average precipitation available in a global grid (2.5°x2.5°). Catalog N/A
NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis A state-of-the-art analysis/forecast system is used to perform data assimilation using data from 1948 to the present. Catalog rss feed
NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Products Derived at PSD A subset of the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis has been processed to create monthly means of the original data, and in some cases, derived variables or other statistics. Catalog rss feed
NCEP/DOE Reanalysis II A state-of-the-art analysis/forecast system is used to perform data assimilation using data from 1979 through 2003. A large subset of this data is available from PSD in its original 4 times daily format and as daily averages. Catalog rss feed
NOAA High-resolution Blended Analysis of Daily SST and Ice. NOAA High-resolution Blended Analysis of Daily SST and Ice. Data is from 1985 and is on a 1/4 deg global grid. Catalog rss feed
NOAA Highly Reflective Clouds Subjectively identified areas of large-scale organized convection over the global tropics have been gridded daily for a 15-year period from 1971 to 1988. Catalog N/A
North American Regional Reanalysis (NARR) NCEP's high resolution combined model and assimilated dataset. It covers 1979 to near present and is provided 8-times daily, daily and monthly on a Northern Hemisphere Lambert Conformal Conic grid for all variables. Catalog N/A
20th Century Reanalysis (V2) 20th Century Reanalysis contains objectively-analyzed 4-dimensional weather maps and their uncertainty from the late 19th century to 21st century.Catalog N/A
Uninterpolated OLR Gridded OLR data from NCEP without interpolation. See the Interpolated OLR dataset for an interpolated version. Catalog rss feed
