nasa: Pressure and High Cloud Cover Spatially Distributed Time...

Description Usage Format Details Source Examples


Six years of monthly pressure and high cloud cover measurements over a regular grid of the Americas, from NASA's poster competition at the 2006 Joint Statistical Meeting (JSM).




This NASA data set is stored as a list of 3 components: data (containing the pressure and high cloud cover measurements), elev (the elevation data), and coast (the coastline data). To see the structure, type str(nasa), and see Details and Source for more information, below.


The data are a subset of some geographic and atmospheric measurements on a coarse 24 by 24 grid covering Central America. The variables included are elevation, air pressure, and high cloud cover. With the exception of elevation, the variables are monthly averages, with observations for Jan., 1995 to Dec., 2000. These data were obtained from the NASA Langley Research Center Atmospheric Sciences Data Center.
