U.K. Northern Hemisphere Sea-Level Pressure and 500mb Height Grids for 1944Dec to 1946Dec

| DOI: 10.5065/Q7TF-WF37

This dataset contains gridded Northern Hemisphere sea-level pressure and 500mb geopotential height data from the United Kingdom.

The DSS has converted the original daily 10-degree by 5-degree sea-level pressure grids to a 5-degree by 5-degree grid, interpolating data to non-original gridpoints and computing monthly grids. The period covered is December 1944 to December 1946.

The daily 500mb geopotential height grids cover the period from January 1945 to December 1946 on a 10-degree by 5-degree grid.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
