Monthly mean mid-tropospheric temperatures above Australian Antarctic stations.
Entry ID: SOE_mid_tropo

Monthly means of daily temperatures at the 500hPa level (mid-troposphere), from radiosonde soundings above Australian Antarctic stations Casey, Davis, Mawson and Macquarie Island.

There are three types of indicators used in this report:
1.Describes the CONDITION of important elements of a system;
2.Show the extent of the major PRESSURES exerted on a system;

Quality Monthly means are calculated from daily observations of temperature at the 500hPa level. Observations are restricted to within a few hours of 0000UTC to avoid biases and to allow comparison with limited historical data. If less than 25 daily observations are available for a given month, the monthly data are flagged and removed from the State of Environment dataset.
