Web-based Reanalysis Intercomparison Tool: Monthly Maps

The page is a prototype. We hope to add more features to the page as well as additional analysis webpages.
Sometimes plots will time out. If so, try again before emailing us with the problem.

Plot monthly maps or vertical cross-sections from different reanalysis datasets as well as differences between reanalyses.
Means, anomalies and climatologies are available.

? Dataset 1? Optional: subtract Dataset 2?
? Which variable? Level?
? Enter years for composites (from 1 to 16): e.g. 1972. For seasons that span a year (e.g. DJF), please enter year of the LAST month.
