Daily Northern Hemisphere Forecast Grids, Sporadically Between November 1967 and December 1971

| DOI: 10.5065/Z0E6-X291

This historical dataset is recommended for ancillary use only and not as a primary research dataset. It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.


This dataset contains various daily NMC forecast grids on a 47 by 51 Northern Hemisphere polar-stereographic grid centered on the North Pole. Grids on various tropospheric levels and layers contain parameters which include geopotential height, temperature, wind, surface and sea-level pressure, vertical motion, and stream functions, and they are available for sporadic periods between November 1967 and December 1971.

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.
