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 acknowledgement String This project received funding support from NASA REASON PROGRAM, NASA MEASURES PROGRAM and NOAA CLIMATE DATA RECORD (CDR) PROGRAM
attribute NC_GLOBAL cdm_data_type String Grid
attribute NC_GLOBAL comment String ---------- TO RE-MAP EQUAL-AREA MAP TO EQUAL-ANGLE (SQUARE LON,LAT) MAP ---------- For display purposes, the ISCCP equal-area map may be converted to an equal-angle map using replication. The variables 'eqlat_index', 'sqlon_beg' and 'sqlon_end'are provided for this purpose. Each equal-area cell is replicated into a specific range of longitude cells in the equal-angle map. For example, to remap an equal-area array eqvar[41252] to an equal-angle array sqmap[360,180], each eqvar[i] should be replicated into the range of cells indicated by sqlon_beg[i] and sqlon_end[i], and the lat index eqlat_index[i]. Using Fortran notation the assignment is: sqmap[sqlon_beg[i]:sqlon_end[i], eqlat_index[i]] = eqvar[i]. ---------- TO CONVERT COUNT UNITS TO PHYSICAL UNITS ---------- When attribute conversion_table is present for any variable, the reported values of count units may be converted to physical quantities by using the specified conversion table variable as a look-up table whose index is count value 0-255. For example, temperature = tmptab(count), temperature_variance = tmpvar(count), pressure = pretab(count), reflectance = rfltab(count), optical_depth = tautab(count), ozone = ozntab(count), humidity = humtab(count), water_path = wpatab(count). ---------- DEFINITION OF CLOUD TYPES ---------- VIS/IR cloud types are defined by a histogram of cloud top pressure and cloud optical depth, for both liquid and ice clouds. IR cloud types are defined by a histogram of cloud top pressure. Identification labels for the 18 VIS/IR cloud types and the 3 IR cloud types are given in the 'cloud_type_label' and 'cloud_irtype_label' variables, which correspond to the order of the cloud type variable arrays.
