Summary
Abstract: The USSR has provided NCAR with a variety of surface and upper-air data dating back to the 1880's. These include rawinsonde data (atmospheric temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction) from six USSR stations for 1961-1970. Total cloud amount from satellite data for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres are prepared on 5 X 5 and 5 X 10 degree latitude/longitude grids. Daily surface ... View entire text
