Abstract : In an earlier paper (Model Atmospheres (I)), a procedure was developed for determining the most probable vertical temperature profile associated with the occurrence of 1% global temperature extreme at mandatory-pressure levels at stations in the North American Arctic. The same technique, based upon a variation of the stepwise multiple regression procedure, was employed in the current study. The ensuing multiple regression analysis applied to the geographically and climatologically diverse set of stations of the current study led to realistic estimates of the temperature profiles which were conditionally dependent upon the existence of 1% extreme forcing-level temperature T(J) at previously designated pressure levels P(J).
