DatasetsDescriptionOPeNDAP Catalog
COBE-SST Monthly 1x1 SST dataset from 1891 to present from the JMA. Datasets uses 3D Var to fill gaps. Catalog
COBE-SST2 Sea Surface Temperature Monthly 1x1 SST dataset from 1850 to present from the JMA. Catalog
CRU Air Temperature and Combined Air Temperature/Marine Anomalies V3 Global gridded (5°x5°) monthly anomalies of observed air temperature and combined observed air and marine temperature (HADCRU3) from the mid 1800's to the present. Catalog
CRU Air Temperature and Combined Air Temperature/Marine Anomalies V4 Global gridded (5°x5°) monthly anomalies of observed air temperature and combined observed air and marine temperature (HADCRU4) from the mid 1800's to near present.Current version is V4.2.0 which was put out 5/9/2013. Catalog
NCEP GODAS ocean analysis High Resolution Multi-level ocean analysis from NCEP Catalog
ICOADS Global surface marine data from 1800 to near the present summarized in monthly gridded formats (2°x2° boxes, or 1°x1° boxes from 1960 forward), and offering a variety of statistics. Catalog
Kaplan SST Gridded global SST anomalies from 1856-present derived from UK Met Office SST data which has had sophisticated statistical techniques applied to it to fill in gaps. Catalog
NCEP Operational Analysis NCEP's twice-daily global analysis at 2.5° resolution on pressure levels which is a product of their operational forecast system. Catalog
NCEP Marine Marine data gathered by NCEP summarized into ICOADS-compatible (2°x2° box) statistics. Production of this dataset at PSD was phased out effective in Mar. 2011 (thus data cover 1991-Feb. 2011). Catalog
NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis A state-of-the-art analysis/forecast system is used to perform data assimilation using data from 1948 to the present. Catalog
NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Products Derived at PSD A subset of the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis has been processed to create monthly means of the original data, and in some cases, derived variables or other statistics. Catalog
NCEP/DOE Reanalysis II A state-of-the-art analysis/forecast system is used to perform data assimilation using data from 1979 through 2003. A large subset of this data is available from PSD in its original 4 times daily format and as daily averages. Catalog
NOAA Extended Reconstructed SST V3b A global monthly SST analysis from 1854 to the present derived from ICOADS data with missing data filled in by statistical methods. Catalog
NOAA Extended Reconstructed SST V4 A global monthly SST analysis from 1854 to the present derived from ICOADS data with missing data filled in by statistical methods. Catalog
NOAA Extended Reconstructed SST V5new! A global monthly SST analysis from 1854 to the present derived from ICOADS data with missing data filled in by statistical methods. Catalog
NOAA High-resolution Blended Analysis of Daily SST and Ice. NOAA High-resolution Blended Analysis of Daily SST and Ice. Data is from Sep 1981 and is on a 1/4 deg global grid. Catalog
NOAA Global Surface Temperature (NOAAGlobalTemp) Monthly gridded anomalies of air temperature from the GHCN-M and the NOAA ERSST V4 dataset. Catalog
NOAA Optimum Interpolation (OI) SST V2 Produced weekly on a 1° grid. The analysis uses in situ and satellite SST's plus SST's simulated by sea-ice cover. Before the analysis is computed, the satellite data is adjusted for biases. Monthly and monthly long-term means are also available. Catalog
NODC (Levitus) World Ocean Atlas 1994 Annual, seasonal and monthly long term means for temperature and salinity at multiple depth. Several statistics such as number of observations are included in separate files. Catalog
NODC (Levitus) World Ocean Atlas 1998 The atlas contains annual, seasonal, and monthly long term means for temperature and salinity at multiple depths. Several statistics, including nobs are included in separate files, along with two "mask" files. Catalog
North American Regional Reanalysis (NARR) NCEP's high resolution combined model and assimilated dataset. It covers 1979 to near present and is provided 8-times daily, daily and monthly on a Northern Hemisphere Lambert Conformal Conic grid for all variables. Catalog
NOAA-CIRES 20th Century Reanalysis (V2) 20th Century Reanalysis contains objectively-analyzed 4-dimensional weather maps and their uncertainty from the late 19th century to 21st century.Catalog
NOAA-CIRES 20th Century Reanalysis (V2c) NOAA-CIRES 20th Century Reanalysis V2c contains objectively-analyzed 4-dimensional weather maps and their uncertainty from the mid 19th century to 21st century.Catalog
