These global stratospheric analyses are provided on a pair of 65 by 65 polar
grids, daily at 12Z. They were operationally prepared by NMC using data from the Advanced TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (ATOVS), which contained several sensors including the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU). The analyses are available on eight mandatory levels from 70 to 0.4 mb. Parameters include pressure, geopotential height, and temperature.

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.
