Extended Reconstructed Sea Level Pressure (ERSLP)

| DOI: 10.5065/YBBD-GK79

The extended reconstructed sea level pressure (ERSLP) analysis was constructed using the most recently available Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (COADS) SLP data and improved statistical methods that allow stable reconstruction using sparse data. This monthly analysis begins January 1854, however the analyzed signal is heavily damped before 1910 because of sparse data.

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.
