obs4MIPS Datasets and Documentation

This page provides a summary of Obs4MIPs and ana4MIPs datasets, with links to download the data from the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF), as well as links to documentation on the Climate Data Guide.  Generally, Obs4MIPs provides satellite-derived data while ana4MIPs provides global fields of variables that are not well-observed by satellites.  The ana4MIPs data are from atmospheric reanalysis.

Summary of obs4MIPs and ana4MIPS Datasets
