Daily Northern Hemisphere Time Series Tropospheric Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/M123-2Q46

This dataset contains a time-series collection of daily gridded Northern Hemisphere tropospheric data on a 47-by-51 polar-stereographic grid. These grids have been assembled by DSS from the analyses of various operational models and meteorological projects, and they cover the overarching period from January 1946 forward, although periods for individual parameters and levels will vary. The grids continue to be updated with new data.

Available parameters include sea-level pressure, surface and sea-surface temperatures, and upper-level geopotential height, temperature, wind, and vertical motion at levels from 1000 millibars up to 100 millibars.

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.
