CLIMAT Upper Air Long Period Surface Average Values - Columns in the CUNS table

Description: Long period surface averages for a CLIMAT upper air station for the specified month. Attributes norm_first_year and norm_last_year specify the period over which the normals are calculated. CLIMAT normals are not subject to quality control, so there are no QC or version number attributes.

For the convenience of users, the CUNS file column headers are available for download in Excel or as a comma separated text file
