GATE Analyses by Ooyama, Chu, and Esbensen

| DOI: 10.5065/4M5H-3676

These volumes contain the Ooyama, Esbensen and Chu analysis of upper air soundings taken during Phase III of GATE. The analyzed data has been interpolated to a regular grid using a statistical interpolation technique developed by Ooyama (1987). The method was applied to the wind data by KV Ooyama and J-H Chu, and to the temperature and relative humidity data by SK Esbensen. A technical report on the temperature and relative humidity analysis is available from SK Esbensen .

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.
