Entry ID: NCAR_DS086.0

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains monthly means of several meteorological variables, their squares, and their cross-products for nine levels in the atmosphere. These mean grids were prepared by the Climate Analysis Center (CAC) from NMC daily analyses. The grid is a 2.5 degree grid (145x37) for each hemisphere, so that data are available globally.
