These data are monthly, 2-degree grid, analysis fields of surface variables over the Indian ocean. The technique used to provide these fields is described in a paper Jones et. al. (1995). There are monthly fields for each month from January 1960 - December 1989. There are 10 analysis variables: easterly pseudo-stress, northerly pseudo-stress, wind speed, sea surface temperature, air temperature, surface humidity, easterly wind stress, northerly wind stress, sensible heat flux, latent heat flux.
