Description:
Abstract:
The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) Climate Data Library contains a wide variety of primarily oceanographic and atmospheric data sets. All of the data is available online and most can be viewed through the Data Library's Data Viewer. The Data Viewer allows the user to choose the data desired, make plots, tables, files, subset files, etc. The data library is accessible from: "http://ingrid.ldgo.columbia.edu/" The LDEO Data Viewer can deliver data to the user as data files (netCDF and HDF), as tables (html), and in a variety of plots (line, contour, color, vector) and plot formats (PostScript and gif). processing of the data, particularly averaging can be requested.
