Monthly Tropical Atlantic Ocean Gridded Pseudo-Stress and Sea Surface Temperature Analyses

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The data consist of monthly mean tropical pseudo wind-stress and sea
surface temperature in a 2 by 2 degree grid.

The analysis method is based on a combination of objective and
subjective analysis. The data are first averaged in 2 degree latitude
by 5 degree longitude boxes. All the individual values statistically
unrealistic within these boxes are then ... View entire text
