Abstract: This data set contains climatological monthly means of heat fluxes and
radiation budget over the global oceans, based on analyses of the
Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (COADS) for the period
1950 - 1979. All data are given on a 2 x 2 latitude/longitude
grid. Meteorological and oceanographic parameters contained in
this data set include air temperature, mixed layer temperature,
