Summary
Abstract: This Atmospheric Angular Momentum data set is stored at the British
Atmospheric Data Center (BADC). The data originated at the UK
Meteorological Office (UKMO) and the European Centre for Medium-Range
Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). All data are in ASCII format and may be
accessed by the World Wide Web or by anonymous FTP. Each data set file
contains 3 angular momentum components at 12 or 24-hourly
intervals. The temporal coverage begins in 1979.
