Australian Southern Hemisphere Tropospheric Analyses, daily from April 1972 to December 1992

| DOI: 10.5065/VFF1-3C23

This historical dataset is recommended for ancillary use only and not as a primary research dataset. It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.


From the Australian National Meteorological Research Centre, twice daily Southern Hemisphere grids on a polar stereographic projection. DSS derived the monthly mean grids. Later and ongoing data may be available directly from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

Unless you have a special interest in this dataset, DSS recommends that you use one of our reanalysis datasets, such as ds090.0, because those are based on a more complete collection of observations, improved analysis methods, and are provided in a common modern format (GRIB).

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.
