Current status of ERA-Interim grib download and conversion to netcdf on dcc

Last updated on 06/01/2014

Data available on ECMWF data server: from 01/1979 to 10/2013

    • Lists of variables available for each dataset

!! oper_an_sfc --> Operational Analysis at Surface
~ original grib !!  !! variable name !!  !! netcdf !!  !! original grib !!  !! variable name !!  !! netcdf
Temperature of snow layer [K] = Sea-ice cover [(0 - 1)]
Soil temperature level 4 [K] = Total cloud cover [(0 - 1)]
Skin temperature [K] = x Mean sea level pressure [Pa] x
Logarithm of surface roughness length for heat [] = Charnock []
Total column ozone [kg m-2] = Snow depth [m of water equivalent]
Skin reservoir content [m of water] = Soil temperature level 1 [K]
High cloud cover [(0 - 1)] = Total column water vapour [kg m-2] x
Medium cloud cover [(0 - 1)] = Total column water [kg m-2] x
Low cloud cover [(0 - 1)] = Surface pressure [Pa] x
Soil temperature level 3 [K] = Volumetric soil water layer 4 100-255 cm [m3 m-3]
Albedo [(0 - 1)] = Volumetric soil water layer 3 28-100 cm [m3 m-3]
Surface roughness [m] Volumetric soil water layer 2 7-28 cm [m3 m-3]
Soil temperature level 2 [K] Volumetric soil water layer 1
0-7 cm [m3 m-3]
2 metre dewpoint temperature [K] x Ice surface temperature layer 4100-255 cm [K]
2 metre temperature [K] x Ice surface temperature layer 328-100 cm [K]
10 metre V wind component [m s-1] x Ice surface temperature layer 17-28 cm [K]
10 metre U wind component [m s-1] x Ice surface temperature layer 10-7 cm [K]
Snow density [kg m-3] Sea surface temperature [K] x
Snow albedo [(0 - 1)]
