Title: U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center's (FNMOC) NOGAPS Computational Grids
Description:
Abstract:
Four times daily global forcing fields from the US Navy NOGAPS model on 720X360 (averaged resolution of 0.5 degree) Gaussian computational grids. Notice: These are Gaussian grids, not evenly spaced rectangular grids. If you need rectangular grids, use the standard 360X181 (standard 1 degree NOGAPS products). Further details on the NOGAPS model can be found at: http://www.usgodae.org/
