AMSU/MSU Lowstratosphere Day/Month Temperature Anomalies and Annual Cycle V6
Entry ID: msutls_6


Summary
Abstract: The AMSU/MSU Lowstratosphere Day/Month Temperature Anomalies and Annual Cycle V6 dataset consists of temperature anomalies and annual cycle temperatures derived from the Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU) and the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A (AMSU-A) radiance data since January 1978. All products are derived for the lower stratosphere. The dataset begins on January 1, 1978 and is still currently ongoing. The data are available in netCDF-4 and ASCII formats.
