Climate Analysis Center Base Period Climate Diagnostics Data Base

This dataset contains monthly long-term climatological means, variances, and covariances of geopotential height, temperature, specific humidity, wind, and vertical motion for the atmosphere from 1000mb up to 50mb. Long-term means are computed over the period from October 1978 to September 1985. The data are on a global latitude/longitude grid with a resolution of 2.5 degrees.
