The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL _CoordSysBuilder String ucar.nc2.dataset.conv.CF1Convention
attribute NC_GLOBAL acknowledgment String COAMPS is the latest product in a series of mesoscale model developments at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Marine Meteorology Division (MMD). The original data system was created in 1997, and data was made available to the general public in early 2001.
attribute NC_GLOBAL cdm_data_type String Grid
attribute NC_GLOBAL comment String COAMPS data are provided by the Naval Research Laboratory Marine Meteorology Division. The server is a United States Government / Department of Defense / Navy computer system. This is a U. S. Government Website. These products are a research project meant to provide a general overview of monthly-averaged winds along California. Please contact the providers of these products to ensure accuracy before making any critical judgements. Please provide proper source citation when using these products.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This dataset consists of monthly-averaged modeled wind data from September 2013-August 2014, from the Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System (COAMPS™) model. Data are 4 km resolution, spanning California. COAMPS model data can be used for short-term numerical weather prediction for various regions around the world. This dataset represents short-term modeled predictions for winds data off California, as a means of providing general monthly winds trends.
