Atmosphere

Atmospheric trends now includes outgoing long wave radiation (OLR) and anomaly plots (daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal); surface winds, sea level pressure (SLP); and global wind oscillation. Suggestions for additional plots are welcome.

| Note: Missing graphics may be due to temporary server maintenance (or the occasional gov. shutdown). |
