NOTOS IGY Daily Southern Hemisphere Sea-Level Pressure and 500 Millibar Height Grids for 1957 June to 1958 December

| DOI: 10.5065/2FGV-BF79

The grids in this dataset contain Southern Hemisphere sea-level pressure and 500 millibar height data for the International Geophysical Year (IGY) period of June 1957 to December 1958. The data are on a 5-degree latitude/longitude grid covering the hemisphere from 15S to the South Pole.

The data originally came from South Africa where it was on a 10-degree by 5-degree diamond latitude/longitude grid. DSS interpolated data to the missing gridpoints to provide a resolution of five degrees in both directions.

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.
