AMPS Archive on NCAR's HPSS

The AMPS archive contains forecasts since January 2001. Any particular forecast times not found in a listing of the files reflect missed forecasts. Sizes listed are current sizes. Older files may be smaller because of a smaller model configuration (e.g., horizontal/vertical dimensions). Occasionally, stored forecast files may be smaller than the usual sizes; this reflects a shortened forecast due to some problem when the particular AMPS run was made. File archive strategies (e.g., data organization, data compression, file naming conventions, etc.) have changed from time to time.
