Reanalysis-1 / Reanalysis-2
The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) contributes to two global reanalysis projects in cooperation with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the Department of Energy (DOE). Both reanalyses are global, gridded, and are initialized with source data from surface level instruments, upper air balloons, aircraft, and satellites.
NCEI provides access to gridded data from Reanalysis-2 as both a 6-hourly reanalysis, and monthly means.
Note: Reanalysis-2 ingest data at NCEI stopped with a complete, fixed period of record of 01 Jan 1979 through 30 Sep 2005. Additional Reanalysis-2 data is available through the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) Reanalysis-2 home page.
