Data categories

The tables above contain four different categories of data:

  • Fundamental Climate Data Records (FCDR): Single sensor type re-calibrated and inter-satellite calibrated Level 1 data
  • Thematic Climate Data Records (TCDR): Geophysical variables associated with GCOS Essential Climate Variables based on Fundamental Climate Data Records (FCDR)
  • Data for operational climate monitoring produced close to real time
  • Historically reprocessed data with not fully assessed quality

Data from the first two categories can be used to analyse climate variability and change, the third only supports operational climate monitoring activities such as monthly bulletins and the fourth is related to input provided to past reanalyses at ECMWF.
