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 will be extended in real-time into the future. CFSR monthly atmospheric, oceanic and land surface output products are available at 0.5, 1.0, and 2.5 degree horizontal resolutions as 6-hourly diurnal monthly means (00Z, 06Z, 12Z, and 18Z) and regular monthly means. As a value-add for longer-term climate research, the CISL RDA has created timeseries of individual parameters/levels from the regular monthly means. For more information about CFSR, please see http://rda.ucar.edu/pub/cfsr.html [http://rda.ucar.edu/pub/cfsr.html].
