Change to NCAR RDA maintained ERA5 dataset, ds630.0 no longer updated
Note: This page was originally sourced from our Blogger page: http://ncarrda.blogspot.com/2019/09/change-to-ncar-rda-era-5-dataset-ds6300.htmlThe full time series of the RDA maintained ERA-5 dataset is being made available under ds633.0 -ERA5 Reanalysis (0.25 Degree Latitude-Longitude Grid)
For background, processing and publication of data to ds630.0 was stopped in April, 2019, due to the length of time it was taking to update that dataset. It was estimated that it would take around 6-7 years to download, process, and archive data in ds630.0 using legacy strategies versus around 1 year to download, process, and archive the full time series (1950 - present) of the 0.25x0.25 gridded data staged online in the Copernicus Climate Data Store.
We encourage you to modify all RDA supported ERA-5 workflows to use ds633.0, https://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/
