NAME: FSL MADIS Special Data


The FSL MADIS Special Data dataset is a collection of data from many networks. The data are fed to the National Center for Atmospheric Research / Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) over the LDM by the FSL Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS). Some of these networks are themselves collections of data from unrelated sources. Each of these networks/subnetworks can contain different frequency data and different parameters. NCAR/EOL converts all of this data to NCAR/EOL Surface QC format. The "Nominal" hourly observations for the NAME domain and time period are included in the dataset "FSL MADIS Hourly Data (NCAR/EOL surface QC format) [NCAR/EOL]. This "FSL MADIS Specials Data (NCAR/EOL surface QC format) [NCAR/EOL]" contains special frequency data.
