GCIP/LSA-NW 00 Surface: Special Surface Observations Composite


This dataset contains the Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS), Unidata Local Data Manager (LDM) World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Surface METAR (LDMSFCMETR), Montana Department of Transportation (MDT of MTDOT) Remote Weather Informational System (RWIS), and Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) Roadway Weather Informational System (RWIS) "Special" observation surface data in QC format. Data for the GEWEX Continental-Scale International Project (GCIP) Large Scale Area-North West (LSA-NW) Enhanced Annual Observing Period (EAOP) 2000 domain and time periods are contained within this dataset. The ASOS, LDMSFCMETR, MTDOT_RWIS, and WYDOT_RWIS "Nominal" hourly surface data for the GCIP LSA-NW EAOP 2000 domain and time period are included in the GCIP LSA-NW EAOP 2000 Hourly Surface Composite. No additional QC was performed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Joint Office for Science Support (UCAR/JOSS).
