AMSU/MSU Midtroposphere Day/Month Temperature Anomalies and Annual Cycle V6
Entry ID: msutmt_6


Summary
Abstract: The AMSU/MSU Midtroposphere 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 mid-troposphere. The dataset begins on January 1, 1978 and is still currently ongoing. The data are available in netCDF-4 and ASCII formats.
