How can i access the historic data of NCEP SST analysis? The rtg sst ( is only available in 2018, and I wanna do simulation from 2001-2015? The rtg_sst_hr is only availabel during 205-2020(

Thanks and best regards
I first would like to apologize for the long delay in response. I've been traveling for a few weeks and am just now catching up with forum inquiries. Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately we do not manage meteorological input data. You can try contacting the group who manages the NCEP site you mention to see if they have any suggestions. You can also contact NCAR'S Research Data Archive group to see if they have it or know where to find it.
