| DOI: 10.5065/8ARS-CZ41

This dataset contains monthly long-term climatological means, variances, and covariances of geopotential height, temperature, specific humidity, wind, and vertical motion for the atmosphere from 1000mb up to 50mb. Long-term means are computed over the period from October 1978 to September 1985. The data are on a global latitude/longitude grid with a resolution of 2.5 degrees.

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.
