Monthly Tropical Pacific Ocean Gridded Pseudo-Stress Analyses
Entry ID: FSU_PSEUDO_STRESS_PACIFIC

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This file contains monthly average pseudostress values on a 2-degree,
84x30 grid, (1 grid/month) over the Tropical Pacific Ocean. These
values were obtained by subjective analysis of a 2-degree by
10-degree grid, which was digitized to a 2-degree grid. The raw
data for this analysis included marine surface observations obtained from
the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), Asheville, North Carolina.
The current year's analyses are the quick-look product based on reports
coming in over the National Meteorological Center (NMC) Global
Telecommunication System (GTS). The data are in (meters/sec)**2
with east = positive and north = positive.
