Analysis, generated by Remote Sensing Systems. CCMP V2.0 has been created using the same VAM as CCMP V1.1 only it is now running at Remote Sensing Systems. Input data have changed and now include all V7 radiometer data from RSS, V8.1 GMI data from RSS, scatterometer data from RSS (V4 QuikSCAT and V1.2 Advanced SCATterometer (ASCAT)), quality checked moored buoy data from National Data Buoy Center (NDBC), Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL), and ISDM, and ERA-Interim data from European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
