NOAA-CIRES Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project: Ensemble means and spreads for 1891 to present in GRIB format, Version II
The 20th Century Reanalysis dataset provides 6 hourly analyses on a Global 2.0 degree latitude x 2.0 degree longitude global grid from 1871 to present produced from a series of 56-member ensemble runs. For each output time step ensemble means and associated spreads have been calculated and form a continuous dataset over the entire timespan of the dataset. The data contain fields at the surface and on pressure levels from 1000 hPa to 10 hPa. The dataset authors request that the following acknowledgment be included in all papers using the dataset: 'Support for the Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project dataset is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (DOE INCITE - http://www.doeleadershipcomputing.org/incite-program/ ) program, and Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER - http://science.energy.gov/ber/ ), and by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Program Office (http://www.climate.noaa.gov/).'
