[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) was initially completed over the 31-year period from 1979 to 2009 and has been extended to March 2011. CFSR was initialized 4 times per day (0000, 0600, 1200, and 1800 UTC), and the 6-hourly atmospheric, oceanic and land surface analyzed ... View entire text
