NCEP FNL Operational Model Global Surface Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/978H-D239

These NCEP FNL (Final) Operational Global Analysis data are on pairs of 2.5 by 2.5 degree hemispheric grids every twelve hours. This product was from the Global Forecast System (GFS) that was run operationally in near-real time at NCEP. DSS prepared this surface subset from ds082.0.

The analyses are available on the surface, at 1000mb and a boundary layer. Parameters include surface pressure, sea level pressure, geopotential height, temperature, sea surface temperature, soil temperature, water content of soil, ice cover, water equivalent of snow depth, relative humidity, specific humidity, u- and v-wind components, minimum temperature, maximum temperature and land-sea mask.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
