NCEP CPC Upper Stratospheric and Lower Mesospheric Analyses

The Global Upper Stratospheric and Lower Mesospheric Analyses are provided on a pair of 65 by 65 polar grids, daily at 12Z. These were operationally prepared by NCEP/CPC, using Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) satellite data.

The analyses are available on four levels: 5, 2, 1 and 0.4 millibars. Parameters include pressure, geopotential height, and temperature.
