    During summer 1975, the Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment (AIDJEX) maintained 4 manned camps on ice floes in the Arctic Ocean. Instrumentation recorded surface and geostrophic winds, ocean current velocity at 2 and 30 meter depths, and camp (floe) position. Data available are daily average values for each parameter at each camp, as well as ice velocity and smoothed position data. Surface pressure and geostrophic wind data at 6-hourly intervals are also available.

    These analyses and forecasts are from the National Meteorological Center (NMC) and are archived at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).The data consist of temperature, tropopause temperature and pressure, maximum and minimum temperature, geopotential height, sea level pressure, relative humidity, wind (u and v component), vertical velocity, snow depth, sea surface temperature, and total precipitation. Temperature and geopotential height are given for 14 levels from 1000 to 10 mb, while the humidity is given as an average for the three layers; 1002-900, 1000-666, and 666-333 mb. Vertical velocity is given at the 850, 500, and 200 mb levels. The winds analyses are given from 850 to 100 mb. Snow depth and sea surface temperature are given at the surface.The tropical analyses include temperature and winds from 850 to 200 mb. The Northern Hemisphere forecasts include 72-hour geopotential heights from 1000 to 300 mb; 12-hour temperature at 850, 500, and 300 mb; 36-hour vertical velocity at 500 mb; 12-hour winds (u and v) at 850, 500, and 300; and 36-hour total precipitation at the surface.These analyses are prepared on a 47 X 51 (1,977 grid points) Northern Hemisphere polar stereographic octagonal grid and has a resolution of 381 km at 60 degrees North. Latitudes south of 12 degrees North are omitted, as are the corners of the rectangle.These analyses are also prepared on a 65 X 65 (4,225 grid points) full Northern Hemisphere grid. It has the same spacing as the 1,977-point octagonal grid but it is square and extends to the equator where the resolution is 204.2 km.

    Publication Title: World weather maps (pub.1965).Consist of a daily series of maps for the period July 1, 1957 through December 31, 1958. These maps are published as monthly booklets in 3 parts, each containing a surface and 500-mb. map for 1200 GMT each day as follows:Part I covers 20°N to North Pole providing Polar sterographic projection with true scale of 1 to 50 million at latitude 60°N. It contains sea level and 500-mb charts for the northern hemisphere from July 01, 1958 to December 31, 1958. All observations are 1200 GMT except those for stations operated by Canada and U.S.A. Time of these observations changes from 1230 GBT for sea-level and 1500 GMT for 500-mb., to 1200 GMT for both levels ons June 1, 1957 unless otherwise indicated. Data tabulations of synoptic surface reports for 1200 GMT for selected stations and upper-air reports for 0000 GMT for the entire northern hemisphere.and for all observational times for the North American area also are published, under separate binding.Part II covers 25°N - 25°S providing Mercator's projection with true scale of 1 to 50 million at latitude 22 1/2° from July to December 1957.Part III covers 20°S to South Pole providing Polar sterographic projection with true scale of 1 to 50 million along latitude 60°S from January to June 1958.Available from the NOAA Library System: URL http://www.lib.noaa.gov/.

    Results of meteorological studies conducted near the edge of the seasonal pack ice in the eastern Bering Sea on the NOAA ship SURVEYOR from 26 February to 10 March 1981 are summarized. Surface air pressure and air temperature analyses are presented including all late reports for 00 and 12 GMT from 23 February to 21 March. Upper-air observations from the SURVEYOR, and ST. Paul and Nome, Alaska, are also presented. Cross sections of the potential temperature in the boundary layer which were made as the ship steamed away from the ice during off-ice winds show the warming and deepening of the atmospheric mixed layer. The regional weather conditions encountered during this period are discussed and compared to Climatology including this period are discussed and compared to Climatology including the relationship between the atmospheric boundary layer structure and the synoptic weather.[Reference: Lindsay, R.W., and A.L.

    Publication Title: The climate of Asia (pub.1964).In Japanese. Includes a guide booklet in English. Consists of two parts: Part I giving detailed accounts of the climate of the whole Asia excluding Japan and Part II presenting comprehensive tables of climatic data for the whole Asia, which were collected from 917 observing sites including 12 in Japan. Includes supplements of Climatic Tables of Japan, Temperature of sea water in the Asian area, bibliographical guide to climatological data, and indexes.In Part I are 6 chapters (Introduction, China and its neighborhood, Southeast Asia, Indo-Pakistan area, West Asia and the Asian area of USSR) detailed by "figures" 1-176 and 29 tables, which include ordinary distribution maps of several climatic factors and incorporate the results of the recent dynamic climatological researches.The major features of the climatic tables in Part II are extremes and frequencies of several weather phenomena such as temperature, rain, snow, hail, gale, etc., whereas the ordinary schemes published hitherto give only the mean values of temperature and precipitation. Another distinctive feature is an unprecedented large number of the stations, which well represent the whole areas of Asia. The period of time covered by these statistics ranges mainly from 1931 to 1960, which is the period now in use for international normals.Available from the NOAA Library System: URL http://www.lib.noaa.gov/.
