High southern latitude cyclone behaviour during the FROST SOPs and its longer term variability
Entry ID: ASAC_874

Abstract: Using the ECMWF analyses for the three FROST periods, a data set has been extracted to show the anomalous mean sea level pressure over these periods. In addition a comprehensive analysis of all cyclones in the sub Antarctic region during the special observing periods is part of the set.
