ACE-1: Model NCEP Medium Range Forecast model output on Pressure Surfaces


The U.S. National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) routinely ran the Medium Range Forecast (MRF) model twice daily (00 and 12 UTC) during the ACE-1 period. This dataset is the 3-dimensional model analysis and forecast grids on pressure surfaces. The initial analysis and forecasts to 48 hours (in 12 hour steps) are available in GRIB format.
