Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: In the analysis of the data, procedures were first used to insure time and space continuity of surface temperature and sea level pressure over the ocean areas. Grid point data were read from the U.S. Navy Marine Climatic Atlas series for selected latitudes in order to construct curves as shown in figure 1. Data for orcad as provided guidance in drawing the curves showing ... View entire text
