Title GEOS-5 Production Operations.

Abstract Our GEOS-5 data production achieved a significant milestone this year when we successfully upgraded the Near Real Time (NRT) operational system to generate GEOS-5 assimilation products and forecasts at 1/4 deg spatial resolution. Likewise, the GMAO continued to generate and deliver MERRA products with approximately 3 weeks delay of real-time. The use of MERRA data by researchers and scientists across the globe continued to trend upward. In fact, the total accumulated MERRA data volume downloaded by users surpassed 1.2 PB in June 2012.
