Abstract

Evaluation of the effect of the nonuniformity of the observational network is attempted by using the surface air temperature record of a 15 year integration of an atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM), a data set for which can be easily obtained. The AGCM is a highly truncated spectral model which is very similar to the spectral model in which 15 zonal and meridional wave numbers (R15) are retained. This spectral AGCM has a global domain, incorporates realistic geography and topography, and seasonally varying observed distributions of sea surface temperature and insolation. -from STAR, 21(4), 1983
