State of the Climate - Global AnalysisEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00672
Abstract: The Global Analysis page is prepared by and available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The page was first presented in 1998 as part of the State of the Climate Report. It is a framework that summarizes global observations of (surface and upper-air) temperature and precipitation data by placing the data into historical perspective. The Global Analysis page provides monthly, seasonal, and annual climate summaries, covering the topics: Global Surface Temperature, Global precipitation, Global Sea Surface Temperature, El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), (Lower and Mid) Tropospheric Temperatures, (Lower) Stratospheric Temperatures, Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Extent (seasonal), and Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice Extent (seasonal).
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.

Quality Data processing and distribution of data are performed in order to allow a direct use for research. However, data are not fully processed to avoid insertion of subjective data corrections. A second quality control of data may be important in order to remove doubtful data when particular conditions where observed in the field. field reports are available at http://www-lgge.ujf-grenoble.fr/ServiceObs/SiteWebAntarc/reports.html
Access Constraints Data access is free and data are fully available. However, please contact Glacioclim staff to inquire for latest information, status, availability and recommandations. Also please keep Glacioclim Staff informed of your uses of the GLACIOCLIM-SAMBA data. This is important for the long-term survival of the observatory.
Use Constraints 1. Data may not be used for commercial applications.
2. Please cite data provider(s).
