AMSU/MSU Tropopause Day/Month Temperature Anomalies and Annual Cycle V6

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

The AMSU/MSU Tropopause 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 tropopause. The dataset begins on January 1, 1978 and is still currently ongoing. The data are available in netCDF-4 and ASCII formats.
