Summary
Abstract: Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) International Maritime Meteorological Tape (IMMT) Format is a historical digital data set archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The TOGA program is a major component of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) aimed specifically at the prediction of climate phenomena on time scales of months to years. The philosophy upon which TOGA is based ... View entire text

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: Source observations were subjected to computer hydrostatic check prior to use in the inversion computations. Suspect values were manually edited and the files updated as necessary. Since the creation of this file, a few observations that passed the set hydrostatic limits have been found to be in error. These are usually quite evident when looking closely at the inversion characteristics.
