It was brought to our attention by Ralf Doscher, of the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), that there is a slight anomaly in our temperature fields around latitude 83N. This feature, illustrated below, exists in both the summer and winter fields, and most of the monthly fields, and is on the order .1 degrees C. A corrected version of PHC will be available within the next few months. Progress updates will be posted as we learn more.
PHC 2.1 Summer Temperature
Most of this web site was posted, except for the "PHC 2.1 Detailed Report".
The PHC 2.1 Detailed Report was posted in its entirety.
The site was rearranged in a couple of ways:
- The PHC 2.1 Overview was modified to be more brief. Much of the original contents were moved to a newly created link on the contents page: About the Upgrade from PHC 2.0.
- The graphics from the "Graphical Analysis" section of the PHC 2.1 detailed report were moved:
PHC 2.1 vs PHC 2.0 Comparison Plots are now in the "About the Upgrade to PHC 2.0" section.
PHC 2.1 Profiles are in the Season Fields/Sample Graphics link on the contents page: Season Fields/Sample Graphics
The poisson solver program provided on the data page (fill_land.f) was modified to be a bit more user friendly toward PHC 2.1 data. Additional comments within the program were also provided to help the user know what lines to modify depending on the data being analyzed.
