NCEP GDAS/FNL Global Surface Flux Grids

| DOI: 10.5065/D61N7Z6Q

The NCEP operational Global Data Assimilation System surface flux grids are on a T574 Gaussian global grid. Grids include analysis and forecast time steps at a 3 hourly interval from 0 to 9 hours. Model runs occur at 00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC daily. For real-time data access please use the NCEP data server.

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.
