Temperature, Pressure and Potential Vorticity Fields at Theta Surfaces from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting
Entry ID: NILU_ECMWF_ISENTROPIC


Summary
Abstract: The pressure, temperature and potential vorticity (PV) fields are used for
European stratospheric ozone research projects, such as EASOE and SESAME
as well as other EU funded projects.

The PV, pressure and temp. on the different isentropic levels are
calculated from the ECMWF T213 initialized analysis extracted at a 1.125
degree lat-lon grid.

The trajectories are 10 day backward analyses ending ... View entire text
