Abstract

Mean monthly temperature data at 850, 700, 500, 300, 200 and 100 mb from about 120 radiosonde stations over the northern hemisphere are subjected to harmonic analysis to study the annual oscillation of tropospheric temperature. Two main features stand out in this analysis: over the tropics at individual stations double maxima occur-one at the lowest level, and the other at about 300 mb; and the amplitude of the annual oscillation is large over the tropics and subtropics with the maximum value appearing over the Asiatic monsoon region. -from Authors
