  • Description:
    "The first global weather experiment of the WMO's global atmospheric research program (FGGE or GWE) is a major international effort to comprehensively observe the global atmosphere. The observational data are classified into two levels: Level I are the raw observations, e.g., radiance measurements, and Level II are processed observations, e.g., layer-mean temperatures. The designation Level III is used to indicate an analysis of the observational data into a three-dimensional spatial array. Two further designations, a and b, are appended to the level designations --'a' implies that the data are assembled in near real time, whereas 'b' implies that the data are collected in a nonreal time mode"--Introduction
