The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) was completed over the 36-year period of 1979 through 2014. The CFSR was designed and executed as a global, high resolution, coupled atmosphere-ocean-land surface-sea ice system to provide the best estimate of the state of these coupled domains over this period. The current CFSR will be extended as an operational, real time product into the future.
This website allows you to download daily CFSR data (precipitation, wind, relative humidity, and solar) in SWAT file format for a given location and time period. For more information about CFSR data, please visit our publications page.
