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
NCEP GODAS ocean analysis High Resolution Multi-level ocean analysis from NCEP 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 Operational Analysis NCEP's twice-daily global analysis at 2.5° resolution on pressure levels which is a product of their operational forecast system. Catalog
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
NODC (Levitus) World Ocean Atlas 1994 Annual, seasonal and monthly long term means for temperature and salinity at multiple depth. Several statistics such as number of observations are included in separate files. Catalog N/A
NODC (Levitus) World Ocean Atlas 1998 The atlas contains annual, seasonal, and monthly long term means for temperature and salinity at multiple depths. Several statistics, including nobs are included in separate files, along with two "mask" files. 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
