Summary
Abstract: Surface temperatures and thickness-derived temperatures from a
63-station, globally distributed radiosonde network have been used to
estimate global, hemispheric, and zonal annual and seasonal
temperature anomalies. The data were obtained from differences in
height between constant-pressure surfaces at individual radiosonde
stations. The pressure-height data before ... View entire text
