U.S. AFGWC Northern Hemisphere Dew Point and Cloud Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/6A1J-2A71

This dataset contains daily grids of dew point depression and cloud coverage for the period September 1963 to April 1972, provided by the U.S. Air Force Global Weather Central (AFGWC). Grids are available twice-daily at 12-hour intervals (00Z and 12Z). Dew point depression is available at four levels (850mb, 700mb, 500mb, and 400mb), as are low, middle, high, and total cloud coverage.

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.
