inst6_3d_ana_Nv: MERRA 3D Analyzed State, Meteorology Instantaneous 6-hourly 0.667 x 0.5 degree V5.2.0 (MAI6NVANA) at GES DISC

The MAI6NVANA or inst6_3d_ana_Nv data product is the MERRA Data Assimilation System 3-Dimensional instantaneous, on model levels, at native resolution. MERRA, or the Modern Era Retrospective-analysis for Research and Application, is a NASA reanalysis for the satellite era (30 years 1979-current) using the Goddard Earth Observing System Data Assimilation System Version 5 (GEOS-5 DAS). This data product contains 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional fields that do not vary during the reanalysis. The data are on the GEOS-5 native 540 x 361 grid with 0.667 degree longitude x 0.5 degree latitude resolution. File sizes are about 1347 Mbytes per day with the following times compacted into a daily file: 00, 06, 12, 18 GMT. Data are archived in the HDF-EOS2 (Grid) format, based on HDF4.
