Extended Reconstructed Sea Level Pressure (ERSLP)


up arrow link to the top of the page Analysis Description

The extended reconstructed sea level pressure (ERSLP) analysis was constructed using the most recently available Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (COADS) SLP data and improved statistical methods that allow stable reconstruction using sparse data. This monthly analysis begins January 1854, however the analyzed signal is heavily damped before 1910 because of sparse data.

A companion extended reconstructed sea surface temperature (ERSST) is also available on this site.
