In this supplement to R-1029, the hemispheric distributions of sea-surface temperature, total cloud cover, planetary albedo, and outgoing longwave radiation for July are extended from hemispheric to global scope. All data are presented on a global grid of 4-deg latitude and 5-deg longitude. They are given both in tabulations and in the form of machine-drawn maps. The corresponding zonal and global averages are also given. These data are being used as a guide for evaluating climate simulations based on the RAND version of the Mintz-Arakawa general circulation model. 47 pp.
