NOTES:
(1) Sea-ice temperature is currently being provided by some of our partners as listed in the table, but due to technical reasons its processing within the C3S dataset has not been yet implemented.

(2) Soil temperature is not available for nominal start dates between February and December 2018 as explained in data gap G3 in this link.

(3) Values at 100hPa are not available.

(4) Just available at 850, 700, 500 and 200 hPa.

(5) Total cloud cover and sea-ice cover are provided by NCEP but with lengths shorter than 6 calendar months. Due to that their processing within the C3S dataset has not been implemented.

(6) Snow depth and Runoff are provided by NCEP,  but due to technical reasons its processing within the C3S dataset has not been yet implemented.

(7) 1000 hPa is not available.

(7b) 1000 hPa is not available for real-time forecast data prior to nominal January 2023 and their corresponding hindcasts.

(8) These variables are available, but as 24h averages.

(9) Just available at 850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 100, 50, 30 and 10 hPa. (NOTE: All pressure level variables, except geopotential, at 925hPa are also provided by JMA CPS2, but due to technical reasons the processing within C3S datasets has not been yet implemented).

(10) Values at 30hPa are not available.
