This dataset holds Northern Hemisphere (north of 15 deg. N) daily and monthly series of 1000-500hPa Geopotential Height Thickness Daily and Monthly Series. The data is gridded on a 5x10 degree grid. The data is available for the period 1945 to 2005.
The geopotential thickness between pressure levels — difference of the 1000 hPa and 500 hPa geopotential heights for example — is proportional to mean virtual temperature in that layer.
The data is supplied by the Met Office, Hadley Centre.
