THE NERC MST RADAR FACILITY AT ABERYSTWYTH
FILE FORMAT FOR MET OFFICE GPS INTEGRATED WATER VAPOUR DATA
These files contain data products derived from measurements made by the Met Office's GPS water vapour receiver located at the NERC MST Radar site. The files are written in a non-standard ASCII format. They contain no header information - just a series of data lines which contain one hour average data products. The times given refer to the middle of that hour. Each file contains All the data prodcuts for a given month. The first 5 lines from the file for August 2001 (gps-iwv_capel-dewi_200108.txt) are shown below in green. The text in red is for explanatory purposes only and does not appear in the files.
