Summary
Abstract: Since 2 July 1993, the AMRC has been archiving the National Centers for Environmental Prediction's (formerly the National Meteorological Center) Medium Range Forecast Model analyses. Since 14 April 1994, the forecasts have also been archived. This collection can be very useful, as it is a smoothed data set over the data sparse Antarctic region. Data collection has stopped as of 31 August, 2015.
