  • The HADRT data are global radiosonde gridded temperature anomalies at standard levels in the troposphere and in the lower stratosphere from 1958 to July 2004. The data are degree Celsius anomalies from 1970-1990 means. Anomalies are calculated for each of about 200 sonde stations worldwide and grid values derived from these. Several versions of the HadRT data are available. The recommended HadRT product for most purposes is HadRT2.1s. This dataset has been superseded by the HadAT dataset collection, also available from CEDA. These pages are provided for the benefit of existing and past users of HadRT. New and existing users are now encouraged to use the HadAT dataset collection instead.

  • The HADRT2.1 data are global monthly fields of radiosonde temperature anomalies at standard pressure levels on a 5 degree latitude by 10 degree longitude grid from 1958 to July 2004. Anomalies are calculated with respect to 1971-1990 climatology. Anomalies are available for 9 standard levels (850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 150, 100, 50, 30hPa) as well as tropospheric (850 - 300hPa) and stratospheric (150 - 30hPa) averages. The data are degree Celsius anomalies from 1970-1990 means. Anomalies are calculated for each of about 200 sonde stations worldwide and grid values derived from these. HADRT2.1 is as HadRT2.0 but with bias corrections made to many station time series world-wide. The adjustments were calculated by reference to MSU data products, but only for known changes in instrumental or operational procedures for the period post 1979. No data are available for the 30hPa level in this version. This dataset has been superseded by the HadAT dataset also available from CEDA.

  • The HADRT2.0 (unadjusted) data are global monthly fields of radiosonde temperature anomalies at standard pressure levels on a 5 degree latitude by 10 degree longitude grid from 1958 to July 2004. Anomalies are calculated with respect to 1971-1990 climatology. Anomalies are available for 9 standard levels (850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 150, 100, 50, 30hPa) as well as tropospheric (850 - 300hPa) and stratospheric (150 - 30hPa) averages. The data are degree Celsius anomalies from 1970-1990 means. Anomalies are calculated for each of about 200 sonde stations worldwide and grid values derived from these. This dataset has been superseded by the HadAT dataset also available from CEDA.

  • The HADRT2.3s data are global monthly fields of radiosonde temperature anomalies at standard pressure levels on a 5 degree latitude by 10 degree longitude grid from 1958 to 2000. Anomalies are calculated with respect to 1971-1990 climatology. Anomalies are available for 9 standard levels (850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 150, 100, 50, 30hPa) as well as tropospheric (850 - 300hPa) and stratospheric (150 - 30hPa) averages. The data are degree Celsius anomalies from 1970-1990 means. Anomalies are calculated for each of about 200 sonde stations worldwide and grid values derived from these. HADRT2.3s is as HadRT2.3 but using HadRT2.1s. This dataset has been superseded by the HadAT dataset also available from CEDA.

  • The HADRT2.2 data are global monthly fields of radiosonde temperature anomalies at standard pressure levels on a 10 degree latitude by 20 degree longitude grid from 1958 to 2000. Anomalies are calculated with respect to 1971-1990 climatology. Anomalies are available for 9 standard levels (850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 150, 100, 50, 30hPa) as well as tropospheric (850 - 300hPa) and stratospheric (150 - 30hPa) averages. The data are degree Celsius anomalies from 1970-1990 means. Anomalies are calculated for each of about 200 sonde stations worldwide and grid values derived from these. HADRT2.2 is an eigenvector reconstructed grid data set from 1958 - 2000, on a 10 degree latitude by 20 degree longitude grid, created from HadRT2.1. The eigenvector reconstruction was used to infill missing seasons or years in boxes with 70% of seasonal or annual data available. This dataset has been superseded by the HadAT dataset also available from CEDA.

  • The HADRT2.3 data are global monthly fields of radiosonde temperature anomalies at standard pressure levels on a 5 degree latitude by 10 degree longitude grid from 1958 to 2000. Anomalies are calculated with respect to 1971-1990 climatology. Anomalies are available for 9 standard levels (850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 150, 100, 50, 30hPa) as well as tropospheric (850 - 300hPa) and stratospheric (150 - 30hPa) averages. The data are degree Celsius anomalies from 1970-1990 means. Anomalies are calculated for each of about 200 sonde stations worldwide and grid values derived from these. HADRT2.3 is a globally complete dataset based on HadRT2.1 1958-2000, but with gaps filled in by reference to the second derivative of the corresponding NCEP reanalysis temperature fields, using the Laplacian technique of Reynolds, 1988: A Real-Time Global Sea Surface Temperature Analysis. J. Climate (see docs for a link to this publication) This dataset has been superseded by the HadAT dataset also available from CEDA.

  • The HADRT2.2u data are global monthly fields of radiosonde temperature anomalies at standard pressure levels on a 10 degree latitude by 20 degree longitude grid from 1958 to 2000. Anomalies are calculated with respect to 1971-1990 climatology. Anomalies are available for 9 standard levels (850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 150, 100, 50, 30hPa) as well as tropospheric (850 - 300hPa) and stratospheric (150 - 30hPa) averages. The data are degree Celsius anomalies from 1970-1990 means. Anomalies are calculated for each of about 200 sonde stations worldwide and grid values derived from these. HADRT2.2u are as HADRT2.2 but created from HADRT2.0. This dataset has been superseded by the HadAT dataset also available from CEDA.
