Abstract : Researchers in the atmospheric sciences need meteorological data from various areas of the world to test and validate models. There is often a lack of available meteorological data necessary for required inputs to these models. Meteorological parameters vary widely depending on time of year, location, wind direction, etc. Using existing worldwide databases, averaged meteorological profiles have been developed for use when in situ measurements are not available. The profiles provide estimated parameters averaged by month for select Marsden Squares. Measured meteorological data and estimated profiles are compared.
