Summary
Abstract: This dataset consists of European Centre for Medium-Range Weather
Forecasts Re-Analysis (ERA) and operational data sets. The temporal
coverage starts in January 1979 and ends in February 1994.

The following data sets are available in the BADC archive:

- Full resolution analysed data (initialised and uninitialised)
- Reduced resolution analysed data - i.e. data interpolated onto a
lat.-long. grid
- Forecast data
- Averaged data
