NCITE Award: The 20th Century Reanalysis Project
Principal Investigator: Gilbert Compo, University of Colorado's Cooperative Institute for Research in the Environmental Sciences Climate Diagnostics Center
Reanalysis of conditions at 7 p.m. on January 28, 1922. (A) Sea level pressure (SLP)
measured in hectopascals (hPa): contours show the ensemble mean SLP, with 1000
and 1010 hPa contours thickened; colors show the range of uncertainty; red dots
indicate observation locations. (B) Height of 500 hPa pressure in meters: contours show
the ensemble mean height, with the 5600 m contour thickened; colors show the range
of uncertainty. (C) Ensemble mean precipitation accumulated over 6 hours, in millimeters.
(D) Ensemble mean temperature (Kelvin) at 2 meters, with the 273 K (0° F) contour
thickened. (J. Whitaker, NOAA Earth System Research Lab)
