STAR Microwave Sounding Calibration and Trends

NOAA/NESDIS/STAR MSU/AMSU-A/SSU global atmospheric temperature trendsMSU/AMSU-A/SSU Global Mean Layer Temperature Anomaly Time Series



Bottom three traces: STAR MSU/AMSU Version 3.0, monthly global mean anomaly time series and trends for the layer temperatures of mid-troposphere (TMT), upper-troposphere (TUT), and lower-stratosphere (TLS). The TMT, TUT, and TLS time series are updated every month. Each update adds the monthly- mean, inter-calibrated and well-merged AMSU-A observations from the latest month to the dataset. The up-to-date, monthly gridded (2.5 latitude by 2.5 longitude resolution)and global mean MSU/ASMU v3.0 data can be downloaded from here.

Top three traces: STAR SSU Version 2.0, 5-day averaged global mean anomaly time series and trends for layer temperatures of mid-stratosphere (TMS), upper-stratosphere (TUS), and top-stratosphere (TTS). The well- merged, gridded (2.5 latitude by 2.5 longitude resolution) global dataset for SSU v2.0 can be downloaded from here.
