NMC B3 Northern Hemisphere Vertical Motion Analyses for October 1958 to December 1972

| DOI: 10.5065/JF3W-6321

This dataset contains various gridded Northern Hemisphere tropospheric analyses and 6-hour forecasts produced by NMC's operational model for the period October 1958 to December 1972. Vertical motion analyses at 650mb and 350mb are available for most of the period, and geopotential heights and thicknesses for for various levels and layers are available until January 1965. Six-hour forecasts of vertical motion cover the period from July 1966 to December 1972. The grid is a 47 by 51 polar-stereographic grid centered on the North Pole.

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.
