Esbensen and Kushnir Atlas of the Heat Balance of the Global Ocean
Data set information
| Query EDMED |
|Data holding centre||Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research|
|Time period||Not specified|
Air pressure; Air temperature; Atmospheric humidity; Wind strength and direction; Temperature of the water column; Heat fluxes between the water column and the atmosphere; Long-wave radiation
Anemometers; meteorological packages; water temperature sensor
The data set comprises 4 x 5 degree grid fields associated with the heat balance of the global earth oceans. These include surface wind speed, sea surface temperature, sea-air temperature difference, air temperature, specific humidity, sea-air specific humidity difference, sea level pressure, net upward long wave flux, latent heat flux, sensible heat flux and net downward heat flux. Monthly and annual mean fields are included. The data are held in PP format.
