These global analyses were prepared daily at 12Z to support NMC's monitoring of temperature trends in the stratosphere. The analysis system used satellite temperatures from the TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS). Global coverage is achieved by combining the 65 by 65 polar stereographic grids for each hemisphere, north and south. The analyses are available on 8 mandatory levels from 70 mbar to 0.4 mbar, and include pressure, geopotential height, temperature, and total column ozone.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ 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.
