Atmospheric Temperature Data at the GHRC

Atmospheric Temperature data at the GHRC

GHRC hosts a long-term record of daily and monthly average global temperatures at three levels of the atmosphere, derived from a series of Microwave Sounding Units (MSU, Advanced MSU) flown on NOAA and NASA satellites from 1979 through the present.

Daily average temperatures at altitudes from 14,000 to 135,000 feet, derived from the AMSU instrument on NASA’s Aqua satellite, can be explored graphically.

Temperature observations from ground-based and airborne instruments are also available from the GPM Ground Validation and Hurricane Science field campaign data collections.
