Monthly Northern Hemisphere Sea-Level Pressure Grids, continuing from 1899
Entry ID: NCAR_DS010.1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains the longest continuous time series of monthly gridded Northern Hemisphere sea-level pressure data in the DSS archive. The 5-degree latitude/longitude grids, computed from the daily grids in ds010.0 [http://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds010.0/], begin in 1899 and cover the Northern Hemisphere from 15N to the North Pole.
