Historical Unidata Internet Data Distribution (IDD) Global Observational Data, May 2003 - current
Entry ID: NCAR_DS336.0

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Historical Unidata Internet Data Distribution (IDD) Global Observational Data are derived from real-time Global Telecommunications System (GTS) reports distributed via the Unidata Internet Data Distribution System (IDD). Reports include surface station (SYNOP) reports at 3-hour intervals, upper air (RAOB) reports at 3-hour intervals, surface station (METAR) reports at 1-hour intervals, and marine surface (BUOY) reports at 1-hour intervals. Select variables found in all report types include pressure, temperature, wind speed, and wind direction. Data may be available at mandatory or significant levels from 1000 millibars to 1 millibar, and at surface levels. Online archives are populated daily with reports generated two days prior to the current date.
