This historical dataset is recommended for ancillary use only and not as a primary research dataset. It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.
Fleet Numerical Oceanographic Center in Monterey California
prepares many analyses, from which we receive this surface
subset on a 63-by-63 grid. It includes sea surface temperature,
air surface temperature, surface vapor pressure, 19.5 meter surface
winds, and sea level pressure.
Unless you have a special interest in this dataset, DSS recommends that you
use one of our reanalysis datasets, such as ds090.0. That's because those are
based on a more complete collection of observations, improved analysis methods,
and are provided in a common modern format (GRIB).

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ 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.
