NCEP GDAS Satellite Data 2004-continuing

| DOI: 10.5065/DWYZ-Q852

This dataset contains a subset of the level 1b or higher satellite data products used in the NCEP Global Data Assimilation System. These files can be used with the Weather Research Forecast (WRF) Data Assimilation (DA) system. However, they can be useful for a variety of applications, particularly where conventional data is scarce.

File sizes may vary due to operational changes.

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.
