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, precipitation, relative humidity, cloud cover, wind speed, sea level pressure, salinity, absorbed solar radiation, outgoing longwave radiation, net radiation, latent heat flux, sensible heat flux, net downward heat flux, net freshwater flux, buoyancy flux, frictional velocity, newtonian cooling rate, and transfer coefficient for latent heat. Precipitation data were prepared by Dennis Shea (NCAR). It was derived from land or island station records and completed by satellite observations. Salinity data required to compute buoyancy fluxes were taken from Sydney Levitus (NOAA/NODC). All input data were monthly mean climatological values except the surface salinity. Because of the small variation of the climatological mean surface salinity throughout the year, annual mean values were used.
