The RDA now hosts two new JRA55 near real-time datasets. For 3-hourly and 6-hourly analysis and forecast data that is auto-updated daily please see ds628.8
The analysis data has 2 day delay, the forecast data 2 or 3 day delay depending on group.
For monthly mean analysis and forecast data please see ds628.9
The monthly mean data for a given month is updated within the first few days of the following month. Both of these datasets represent rotating non-permanent archives. The lifetime of the 3-hourly and 6-hourly data is 7 months. The lifetime of the monthly mean data is to be determined. However, all near real-time JRA55 data is archived into their "formal" counterparts ds628.0:
as soon as possible.
