Trenberth's ECMWF WMO Global Tropospheric Long Term Monthly Mean Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/RJAF-3359

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 It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.


The 5-year (1985-1989) and long term monthly means are calculated using ECMWF global tropospheric analyses between December 1978 and December 1989. The results are archived in this dataset.

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.
