U.S. Navy SPOT Global Surface and Upper Air Observations, daily 1971-1996

The Navy Fleet Numerical Weather Center (FNWC) collects, on an operational basis, surface and upper air data from the Global Telecommunications System (GTS). DSS created the subsets. Coverage and quality inferior to NCEP/NMC ADP - we recommend using DS464.0 [https://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds464.0/] and DS353.4 [https://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds353.4/].
