Summary
Abstract: Operational analyses from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather
Centre (ECMWF) are available through BADC for the period since March
1994. The data is updated monthly, two to three weeks after the end of
the month, e.g data for June becomes available soon after mid
July. Vorticity, divergence, temperature, surface pressure and
vertical velocity data in T106 spectral form plus specific ... View entire text

Access Constraints These data are for bona fide research purposes only and access is
therefore restricted. Note that the ECMWF data is only available via
the meteorological organisation in your own country. The BADC
distributes in the UK for the UK Meteorological Office. For this
reason, we do not make the data available to anonymous users through
these WWW pages.

In order to gain access to the data, please complete and sign the
conditions of use forms. You will then be given access to the data
from an account on one of the BADC's computers.
