Automated Surface Observing Systems (ASOS) 1-minute Data [NCAR/EOL]

Summary

This data set contains 1-minute resolution surface meteorological data from the Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) stations located across the United States, including Guam. These data were retrieved from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) for the PLOWS period (February and March 2009 and November 2009 through March 2010; no data are available for the period in between). Each of the two types of files, om1 and om2, consists of a compressed tar file containing one month of data, with individual files for each station in the United States. The data are in ASCII format.
