FNMOC 500 mb Geopotential Height, 360x181, Monthly, Lon+/-180

Monthly means of the FNMOC (Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center) 6-hourly analyzed geopotential height field on a 360 by 181 global spherical grid (1 degree). For more information on the models used to compute these data please see:

ERD was established at the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) to take advantage of the Navy's global oceanographic and meteorological databases. FNMOC produces operational forecasts of the state of the atmosphere and the ocean several times daily and maintains archives of several important parameters, such as sea level pressure and temperature. ERD derives a number of well-known environmental data and index products which are routinely distributed to researchers at many state and federal laboratories, as well as to academic and international researchers.
