Monthly Climatological Grid Data for Levels Aloft
| DOI: 10.5065/Z4EA-B620
This historical dataset is recommended for ancillary use only and not as a primary research dataset. It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.
The USAF Environmental Technical Applications Center (ETAC) created these monthly climatologies of temperature and winds for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and geopotential height for the Northern Hemisphere. Generally, the data input period from approximately 150 stations was the 5-year period from January 1956 through December 1960, but some data into 1962 were also used. The climatologies are available on 5-degree latitude/longitude grids separately for eight vertical pressure levels between 850 and 50 millibars, inclusive.
