We have transitioned the data files from netCDF3 to netCDF4-classic format on Monday Oct 20th, 2014.

Monthly/Seasonal Climate Composites


Plot seasonal composites (averages) of the mean or anomalies (mean - total mean) of variables from the NCEP reanalysis and other datasets. NCEP data is available from Jan 1948 to Jun 2018 . Other datasets have different time ranges. Note the climatology used for the anomaly and long term mean plots is now 1981-2010 to match the new climate normal timeperiod.


? Which variable? Level?
? Beginning month of season: Ending month:
? Enter years for composites (from 1 to 20): e.g. 1972. For seasons that span a year (e.g. DJF), please enter year of the LAST month.

To subtract one set of years from another, use a minus sign (-) before the years that are to be subtracted.


? OR Enter range of years: to (optional minus to )
