Aga circumpolar avhrr swi 1982 2003

Circumpolar Arctic AVHRR Summer Warmth Index 1982-2003 (Raynolds et al. 2008)

This data set was calculated from monthly AVHRR thermal infrared data (Comiso 2003). Summer Warmth Index (SWI) is the sum of monthly mean temperatures above 0 degrees Celsius. The months of May-September were evaluated for the years 1982 - 2003 (Raynolds et al. 2008).
