Linage statement The interpolation method is ordinary kriging. Observations are square root transformed and back-transformed after interpolation using quantiles calculation. For every day a variogram is automatically fitted. The nugget is zero and the variogrammodel is spherical or exponential, depending on the best fit. The maxdist parameter is not set. The dates in the file name refer to the end-time and start-time of the measurement. The measurement at 08:00 UT (end-time) is assigned to the file in the folder of the preceding day on the FTP server as 2/3 of the measurement period falls on the preceding day. In other words: the measurement with the end-time 19810102T080000 is assigned to the folder 1981/01/01 on the FTP server or in the tar-file. The number of observations varies from 270 to 310.
