The 20th Century Reanalysis dataset provides 6 hourly analyses on a global grid from 1870 to present produced from a series of 56-member ensemble runs. These data are the from each of the 56 ensemble members from the run covering 1966 to 1970. These data were produced on a 2 degree latitude-longitude (180x91) global grid and include data both at the surface and on pressure levels. The dataset authors request that the following acknowledgment be included in all papers using the dataset: 'Support for the Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project dataset is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (DOE INCITE - http://www.doeleadershipcomputing.org/incite-program/ ) program, and Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER - http://science.energy.gov/ber/ ), and by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Program Office (http://www.climate.noaa.gov/).'
