MSU LIMB93 DATA SNAPSHOT

MSU LIMB93 Deep Layer Temperatures and Ocean Precipitation


Data from the MSU LIMB93 processing is available in two formats, namely, the Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) and a native format originally used by the data producer. In both cases, separate files are provided for the Lower Tropospheric Temperature (LTT), the Upper Tropospheric Temperature (UTT), the Lower Stratospheric Temperature (LST) and the Oceanic Precipitation (OP). Each HDF file contains a single year of daily grids at 2.5 degree resolution. The native format files contain all 16 years of data in single files, except for precipitation which is separated by year as in the case of the HDF version of the data. The data and read programs are available for both data formats via anonymous FTP.
