GFS Legacy Products
NCEP Home > NCO Home > Production Management Branch > Legacy GFS Products

NCEP is proposing to remove some legacy output products based on the Global Forecast System(GFS).

Product WMO headers Format Distribution Suggested Replacement
Gridded Products
GFS model output on 95km CONUS grid in GRIB1 many headers GRIB1 NOAAPORT NCEP already disseminates a GRIB2 dataset on this same grid
GFS model output on 80km CONUS grid in GRIB1 many headers GRIB1 NOAAPORT NCEP already disseminates GFS model output on 95km and 40km CONUS grids
0.5 degree RTG SST analysis OTLA88 KWBI GRIB1 NOAAPORT http://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/sst/rtg_high_res/
1 degree 7-day Reynolds OI SST analysis on Family of Services grid HT[ABCDTUVW]A93 KWBC GRIB1 NOAAPORT http://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/sst/rtg_high_res/

Text Products
Upper Wind Fallout Forecasts FD[US|AK|HW|CA]01 KWNO text NOAAPORT Former EPA requirement that no longer exists. HYSPLIT model output now provides this information
GFS model output in GRID format -- text-formatted values at specific grid points G[HPRTWH]**** KWBC grid points in a text bulletin GTS Gridded output in GRIB. NCO no longer supports this text format.
Ship reports culled from GFS analysis dump files ADMN74 KWBC text bulletin very limited distribution Ship data available in GRIB output file gdas1.t00z.sfcshp.tm00.bufr_d.unblok on NCEP ftp server in gdas directories.
