NCEP Climate Forecast System (CFSR and CFSv2) initial conditions,
full ingest data are found in this dataset collection. These data
include conventional and satellite observations, and some select
gridded analysis products. The satellite observations 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), and Community Gridpoint
Statistical Interpolation (GSI) Data Assimilation (DA) systems.
However, they can be useful for a variety of applications,
particularly where conventional data is scarce.
