Inventory File Format

There is a row in the inventory for every NetCDF file in the data set. The inventories are text files that can be opened in any spreadsheet or word processing package. There is one line (or row) per file, and a variety of fields (or columns) that specify the location of the file, the time and position ranges of the data file, and the parameters that it contains. All inventory tables contain the same fields for file location, data position and time, but they may contain a variety of fields for the data parameters. Inventory fields are tab separated and a space in the table means the data file does not contain that particular parameter. Columns after "site" exhibit the existence (1) or nonexistence (0) of that variable in the netCDF file.

Example:
