Abstract:
The GrADS OPeNDAP/DODS Server (GDS) is provided by the NOAA Operational Model Archive and Distribution System (NOMADS) Project and is maintained by NOAA at the National Climatic Data Center . This server provides online access to scientific datasets. Within the online access page, you can browse lists of files on this server. From these lists, you can select files and view metadata (e.g., grid description, dates, and variables) for those files. The metadata for each dataset also contains the URL for that dataset. With an OPenDap enabled client (e.g., GrADS), you can use this URL to access the dataset directly. Follow the "info" link for a dataset, copy the URL, and provide it to your client as required. For each model, the list of variables, timesteps, and levels provided by the "info" link is a composite for that model from runs over multiple grids and cycles. Each variable, timestep, and level in the list will not appear in all datasets for that model. To determine what variables, timesteps, and levels a specific dataset actually contains, view the "table of contents" for that dataset via the Dataset table of contents directory. Additionally, you can browse lists of files on this server via the Complete dataset catalog. From these lists, you can select files and view a table of contents (i.e., TOC) for those files. A TOC provides a sorted list of each variable, level, and timestep in a specific file. A list of all datasets available on this server are also available in XML format. This list will contain several thousand entries so consider download time.
