Oort's Monthly and Seasonal Global Circulation Statistics since 1958 from NCAR and LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library
Entry ID: NCAR_CIRC


Summary
Abstract: These circulation statistics are a collection of 15 years of global
rawinsonde data and all available surface land and surface ship
reports for monthly and seasonal analyses and are archived at the
National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). The sources of data
include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Circulation
Library, NCDC, National Meteorological Center, National Center for
Atmospheric Research (NCAR), British Meteorological Office in
Bracknell, England, and the U.S. Air Force Environmental Technical
Applications Center (ETAC).
