Abstract:
This data set consists of Northern Hemisphere monthly zonal mean geopotential heights and temperature. Gridded data are available from 10N to 90N at 10x10 degrees at 100 hPa, 50 hPa, 30 hPa, and 10 hPa. Muench and Borden (1962) had analyzed monthly mean stratospheric charts from 1955-1959. From these data, B. Naujokat extrapolated the 30-hPa North Pole temperatures for the period July 1955 till June 1957 which enlarges our data set for the North Pole. The other temperature data were extrapolated from our daily maps until 1965 when the temperature analyses were published together with the maps and digitized accordingly, like the height maps. As this is a set of temperature data which is not included in the Berlin Series on the CD, but is used in several publications, the full data are given: for the 30-hPa level the North Pole Temperatures are available from 1955 - 2001: "http://rda.ucar.edu/cdroms/karin_labitzke_strat_grids/html/section1.html" Information on zonal mean data formats are available from: "http://rda.ucar.edu/cdroms/karin_labitzke_strat_grids/html/section8.html"
