CAC Monthly Global Analyses for October 1978 to September 1994

| DOI: 10.5065/B2VN-C427

This dataset contains monthly means of several meteorological variables, their squares, and their cross-products for nine levels in the atmosphere. These mean grids were prepared by the Climate Analysis Center (CAC) from NMC daily analyses. The grid is a 2.5 degree grid (145 by 37) for each hemisphere, so that data are available globally.

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.
