Short summary
From six different reanalysis products, we created a new comprehensive database of major sudden stratospheric warming events, which are large and rapid temperature increases in the stratosphere associated with a reversal of the stratospheric winter circulation. This new database can facilitate analysis of the evolution and surface impacts of these events as well as intercomparison of reanalysis products.
