Tahnk and Newell Digitized NMC Northern Hemisphere Stratospheric Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/AFQS-M883

The National Meteorological Center (NMC) produced weekly Northern Hemisphere atmospheric analyses from available radiosonde and rocketsonde data at various vertical levels, and on a horizontal latitude/longitude grid with a 10-degree resolution. The grids in this dataset were digitized by interpolating the values from the hand-drawn maps produced by NMC.

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.
