ECMWF TOGA 2.5 degree Global Surface and Upper Air Analyses, daily 1985-continuing
Entry ID: NCAR_DS111.2

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains 2.5 degree latitude-longitude output grids from the ECMWF operational model. Both upper air and surface grids are archived in this dataset. ECMWF now has a description [http://www.ecmwf.int/products/forecasts/guide/] of its operational model and its evolution [http://www.ecmwf.int/products/data/operational_system/evolution/].
