Weather data NCEP unavailable

by otpeqi » Wed Dec 20, 2023 3:53 am America/New_York

Hello,

The weather NCEP data are unavailable since December 4th (N202333818_MET_NCEP_6h.hdf and following). Do you know if it is a problem of generation or provision of data on the server ?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Best regards

Since R2022 we have switched to using the NRT GMAO FPIT and Refined MERRA2 products for our ancillary meteorological data.
I continued the NCEP data processing for a year to allow users time to make the transition.
We will no longer be staging the NCEP data.

Hello,

Thank you for your answer.
In which directory can we find the NRT GMAO FPIT and Refined MERRA2 products in order to modify our processing ?

Best regards

The latest NRT MET/OZ: https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/directdataaccess/Ancillary/GLOBAL/2023/355/
GMAO_FP.20231221T000000.MET.NRT.nc

You can also start using:
GMAO_IT.20231221T000000.MET.NRT.nc which is slated to replace GMAO_FP sometime in 2024.

The latest refined:
https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/directdataaccess/Ancillary/GLOBAL/2023/335
GMAO_MERRA2.20231130T100000.MET.nc

The refined MET/OZ is released in 1-month batches - typically on the 20th of the following month.
