ECMWF FGGE TD101 Global Reanalyses, SOP 1 and 2, 1979Entry ID: NCAR_DS307.3
Abstract: ECMWF reanalyses of the FGGE Special Observation Periods (SOP: 1979Jan10 - 1979Mar05 and 1979May05 - 1979Jul31) based on FGGE IIIb, 1985 version. No plans to do the rest of the FGGE year (as of April 1989). These are the 1986Dec versions of the analyses, and are the initialized grids.

Quality The data are appropriate for global change related assessment of land-atmosphere water, energy and carbon cycle interactions. Although extensive quality checking has been completed, these are research data and the user is responsible for their own quality checking and should be aware that spurious values may exist. The authors hold no responsibly for conclusions drawn from spurious data. We appreciate constructive and well-documented feedback to help make these data more useful. Questions and feedback should be sent to Lucas Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org).
