upper-air climatology

The scientific study of the atmosphere above the boundary layer.

In addition to the presentation of upper-air data (temperature, wind, pressure, etc.), it includes analysis of the causes of spatial and temporal variations of upper-air variables. Among the more common presentations are spatial maps of means over specified time periods (months, seasons, years).
