The fully Global Mean Sea-Level Pressure (GMSLP) dataset, was developed in collaboration with CSIRO (Scientific and Industrial Research for Australia), Australia and NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research), New Zealand. It is an historical, 5 deg. x 5 deg. gridded monthly dataset covering the period 1871-1994. The Met Office Hadley Centre recently produced the HadSLP1 dataset which replaces the Global Mean Sea Level Pressure (GMSLP) data sets, and is a unique combination of monthly globally-complete fields of land and sea pressure observations a 5 degree latitude-longitude grid from 1871 to 1998.
