Summary
Abstract: These data are monthly, 2-degree grid, analysis fields of surface
variables over the Indian ocean. The technique used to provide these
fields is described in a paper Jones et. al. (1995). There are
monthly fields for each month from January 1960 - December 1989. There
are 10 analysis variables: easterly pseudo-stress, northerly
pseudo-stress, wind speed, sea surface temperature, air temperature,
surface humidity, easterly wind stress, northerly wind stress,
sensible heat flux, latent heat flux.
