| DOI: 10.5065/52JZ-ZB17

This collection contains gridded and spectral analyses for the First Global Atmospheric Research Program Global Experiment (FGGE) Special Observing Periods. The gridded data include tropospheric analyses of numerous parameters, and 2D and 3D model and heating diagnostics. The spectral data include surface topography and other parameters at various sigma levels.

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.
