IABP-POLES 2-Meter Air Temperature Data Set
Entry ID: IABP_POLES_2meter

Abstract: The POLES Arctic Gridded 2-meter Air Temperature Data Set provides
optimally interpolated 2-meter air temperatures on the EASE (Equal
Area SSM/I Earth) grid at intervals of 4 times daily for the years
1979 through 1992. Munoz and Martin (1995) give a full description
of the optimal interpolation scheme.

The EASE grid used for this data set is a subset of the rectangular
grid currently being used ... View entire text
