NCEP GFS Single Column Model Forcing Data

This dataset contains forcing data for NCEP GFS Single Column Model (GFS-SCM) at 25 points in the VOCALS region from October 1, 2008 to November 30, 2008. The forcing data were extracted from GFS outputs twice a day at 00 UTC and 12 UTC and stored in individual files. Each file in the data set has forcing data of a particular time at all 25 points. The data set was used by GFS-SCM to provide VOCALS-Rex with real time forecasts. Data files are in binary format.
