GFDL Atmospheric Circulation Analyses by Bram Oort, monthly May 1958 to April 1973

| DOI: 10.5065/2XXD-0503

The "classic" derived by Bram Oort from MIT, GTS, ETAC, NCDC and NCAR data. See also DS431.0.

Unless you have a special interest in this dataset, DSS recommends that you use one of our reanalysis datasets, such as ds090.2. That's 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.
