FSU FGGE IIIb Omega Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/CQSW-Q279

Florida State University used uninitialized u- and v-component winds from the ECMWF IIIb analyses to calculate twice-daily vertical velocity omega grids for the full FGGE year (December 1, 1978 to November 30, 1979). Divergence corrections were applied for Dines compensation, and the effect of orography was introduced via a simple advective algorithm applied to 1000 millibars. The final omegas were evaluated for the same fifteen pressure levels where the horizontal wind components were analyzed.

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.
