In the interests of having MSU-equivalent HadAT timeseries available for immediate comparisons with these satellite-derived data, the Hadley Centre have created a set of MSU equivalent measures under very specific criteria. Although justifiable, many of the decisions they have made are subjective and alternative choices could be made that would appear, at least initially, to be equally plausible. Final MSU equivalent measures for the monthly HadAT2 timeseries are available as well as a number of intermediate products required to produce these from the Temperature on Pressure Levels data. For more information on the real MSU instruments, their measurements and their climate timeseries are available from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and Remote Sensing Systems (external links).
