Summary
Abstract: This data set contains forecast products from the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Project. The resolution of the Reanalysis Forecast Model is T62 (209 km) with 28 vertical sigma levels. Every five days, beginning with 00Z 01 January, an 8 day forecast run is made. The initial time and outputs for every 12 hours are saved from this run. Pressure level and special level data are archived on the ... View entire text
