JISAO data

Planetary Albedo

Annual mean albedo (brown to blue), precipitation (red to yellow), and surface wind.

The climatology was derived from shortwave measurements for the period June 1974 to February 1978 taken by the TIROS-N satellite(s). Analyses of this data for the tropical Pacific and Atlantic are provided in Mitchell and Wallace (1992, J. Climate, 5, 1140-1156).

The data in netCDF format (0.4 Mb).
