Northern Hemisphere Cyclone Locations and Characteristics from NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Data
Entry ID: NSIDC-0423

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set comprises a 50-year record of daily extratropical cyclone statistics computed for the Northern Hemisphere. Cyclone locations and characteristics were obtained by applying the updated Serreze (1997) algorithm to daily Sea Level Pressure (SLP) data at six-hour intervals (Serreze and Barrett 2008). The SLP source data are part of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) ... View entire text
