Coupled Ocean/Atmospheric


logom2COLA Climate Model (NCEP CFSv2)
The Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA) used the National Center for Environmental Prediction's (NCEP) Climate Forecast System (CFSv2) to prepare CMIP5 decadal climate model simulations. CDS published their model output in the CMIP5 on the ESGF data node.

CFSR_logoNOAA NCEP Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR)
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Center for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) is a reanalysis of the coupled atmosphere, ocean, seaice and land over the 31-year period (1979-2009). CDS publishes the CFSR data in the ESGF ana4MIPs project for the purpose of comparing IPCC AR5 Climate Model data to Reanalysis data.

Spatial Coverage: Global
Temporal Coverage: 1979 - 2012, monthly
Data Resolution: 0.25° x 0.25° (tropics), 0.5° x 0.5° (polar)
