Satellite radiance information was used to produce a "first
guess" of the geopotential height and temperature fields at the
5 mbar, 2 mbar, and 0.4 mbar stratospheric levels, and available
rocketsonde data was used to adjust the fields through an
objective analysis procedure. The 65-by-65 polar-stereographic
grids cover the Northern Hemisphere and are available weekly (on Wednesdays)
from July 1976 through April 1980 for the months of January,
April, July, and October.

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.
