Labitzke Berlin Stratospheric Data: Northern Hemispheric Gridpoint Data

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This data set consists of Northern Hemisphere monthly mean and daily gridded
geopotential heights and temperature. Gridded data are available from
10N to 90N at 10x10 degrees and 5x5 degrees at 100 hPa, 50 hPa, 30
hPa, and 10 hPa.

For the 100-, 50- and 30-hPa level, climatological means for 30 years
are available for temperature and geopotential height in both
horizontal resolutions.

Geopotential height data are available from 1962. Temperature data are
available from 1964.

Information on gridpoint data formats are available from:
