Abstract:
This dataset consists of European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts Re-Analysis (ERA) and operational data sets. The temporal coverage starts in January 1979 and ends in February 1994. The following data sets are available in the BADC archive: - Full resolution analysed data (initialised and uninitialised) - Reduced resolution analysed data - i.e. data interpolated onto a lat.-long. grid - Forecast data - Averaged data Please link to the ECMWF Re-Analysis data set home page for information about obtaining this data and to view data set documentation.
