FSL MADIS Hourly Data (NCAR/EOL Surface QC format)



This 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. This dataset contains hourly surface data. Surface special records are located in the dataset "FSL MADIS Specials Data (NCAR/EOL surface QC format) [NCAR/EOL]".
