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
GISS surface temperature analysis Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS/NASA) surface temperature analysis for the globe; globally gridded at a 2x2 resolution. Catalog rss feed
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
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
