The following products represent the average of the ensemble mean anomalies from each contributing model. Data from each model are interpolated to a common 2.5 degree grid before the multi-model mean is calculated. The anomaly of each model is with respect to its own model climate, derived from its own re-forecast statistics. The fields are provided in GRIB code.
