Summary
Abstract: This atlas containing monthly climatologies was prepared by J. Sadler
and is archived at the National Center for Atmospheric Research
(NCAR). This atlas and associated tape at NCAR gives long-period means
of wind direction and speed, wind stress, sea level pressure, and sea
surface temperature for each month. It is an analysis made from the
Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (COADS) ship statistics for
each 2 degree latitude/longitude grid square for the 80-year period,
1900-1979. The maps are usually for 30 S - 40 N.
