Figure 1. Longitude-time sections of the 850-hPa zonal mean virtual temperature (units: K) in a tropical band (10o N-10o S) from (a) the NCEP Climate Diagnostics Data Base (CDDB) and (b) the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis (after Basist and Chelliah 1996).
Figure 2. Time-pressure section of the correlation between the virtual temperature over the region 20o S-20o N from the NCEP/Climate Diagnostics Data Base and the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis (after Basist and Chelliah 1996).
