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 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 or tar-file 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 is 294.
