UK Met Office Lateral Boundary Conditions from HadAM3

The Hadley Centre of the UK Met Office has provided 6 hourly output from the HadAM3 atmospheric GCM for lateral boundary conditions for regional climate models. The files are gzipped NetCDF files from the HadAM3 Global Climate Model, as described in the documentation. Each file contains 6-hourly data for a one month period. The surface pressure field was received separately and is included in a separate set of files included in this data set. Output from 2000 to 2007 is included in this data set.
