NOAA Climate Data Record for Mean Layer Temperature (Upper Troposphere & Lower Stratosphere) from UCAR, Version 2
Entry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00944


Summary
Abstract: The Temperatures of Troposphere / Stratosphere (TTS) (AMSU channel 7 and MSU channel 3) CDR is generated by using National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Europe METeorological Operational satellite-A (Metop/A) satellites. High quality radiosonde observations (RAOBs) identified by coincident Global Positioning System (GPS) Radio Occultation (RO) temperature profile measurements ... View entire text

Purpose: This high quality CDR for Mean Layer Temperatures in the Troposphere / Stratosphere (TTS) (AMSU channel 7 and MSU channel 3) shall help the scientific communities by supplying improved i) Analysis: comprehensive of integrated climate products, ii) Assimilation: model initialization, iii) Reanalysis: improving the reprocessing of other data and re-analyses, and iv) Predictions: predictions in ...
