Summary
Abstract: The NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis project is using a state-of-the-art
analysis/forecast system to perform data assimilation using past data
from 1948 to the present. A large subset of this data is available
from CDC in its original 4 times daily format and as daily averages.
However, the data from 1948-1957 is a little different, in the
regular (non-Gaussian) gridded data. That data was done at 8 times
daily in the model, because the inputs available in that era were
available at 3Z, 9Z, 15Z, and 21Z, whereas the 4x daily data has been
available at 0Z, 6Z, 12Z, and 18Z. These latter times were
forecasted and the combined result for this early era is 8x daily.
The local ingestion process took only the 0Z, 6Z, 12Z, and 18Z
forecasted values, and thus only those were used to make the daily
time series and monthly means here. Please read the problem list
before using the data. The NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis descriptions here
are subdivided into separate data sets These are currently: Pressure
