The document is the second publication in the effort to gather, in one common format, the most representative global climatologies of certain seasonal meteorological variables. From selected data sources, the July global distributions of pressure, temperature, wind, and moisture are reconstructed for the three atmospheric levels. These data are supplemented by presentations of the global distributions of albedo, cloudiness, evaporation, precipitation, and selected elements of the surface heat balance. All data are interpolated at the 4-deg latitude by 5-deg longitude global grid used in the Mintz-Arakawa model. They are given in the form of both tabulated values and machine-analyzed maps.
