This dataset is a collection of various NCEP GFS data used by NCAR's researchers. It consists of periods of GFS spectral coefficients (in binary format) and flux terms (in GRIB format), as well as their transformed, gridded NetCDF files of various spatial resolutions, T382, T254, T170 and T62. All data files are stored on HPSS. There is no attempt to recover, reconstruct missing data. All products are provided as is.

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.
