Monthly Arctic Surface Temperature Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/RZYS-Q187

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 It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.


Thirty years of monthly surface station temperature data from the Arctic north of 60 degrees were objectively analyzed to produce the gridded analyses in this dataset.

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.
