CRU Air Temperature and Combined Air Temperature/Marine Anomalies V4 Global gridded (5°x5°) monthly anomalies of observed air temperature and combined observed air and marine temperature (HADCRU4) from the mid 1800's to near present.Current version is V4.2.0 which was put out 5/9/2013. 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
GHCN Version 3 Land Temperature Dataset GHCN V3 contains gridded temperature anomalies calculated from the GHCN version 3 monthly temperature data set. Catalog N/A
NOAA GHCN_CAMS Land Temperature Analysis new! GHCN CAMS is a high resolution (0.5x0.5) analyzed global land surface temperatures from 1948 to near present. Catalog 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
NCEP GODAS ocean analysis High Resolution Multi-level ocean analysis from NCEP 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 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 Marine Marine data gathered by NCEP summarized into ICOADS-compatible (2°x2° box) statistics. Production of this dataset at PSD was phased out effective in Mar. 2011 (thus data cover 1991-Feb. 2011). Catalog rss feed
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 Merged Land-Ocean Surface Temperature Analysis (MLOST) V3.5.3 Monthly Anomalies of air temperature from the GHCN and the NOAAERSST V3b dataset. Catalog N/A
NOAA Optimum Interpolation (OI) SST V2 Produced weekly on a 1° grid. The analysis uses in situ and satellite SST's plus SST's simulated by sea-ice cover. Before the analysis is computed, the satellite data is adjusted for biases. Monthly and monthly long-term means are also available. Catalog rss feed
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
U. of Delaware Precipitation and Air Temperature Monthly global gridded high resolution station (land) data for air temperature and precipitation from 1901-2010. Catalog N/A
