PART 2: INFORMATION ABOUT THE COMPUTERIZED DATA FILES

14. Contents of the Computerized Data Files

The following table lists the 21 data files distributed by the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) along with this documentation. Each listing includes the file number; a briefdescription including the file name; the number of number of records, file size, and record length.These files are available on 8-mm tapes, quarter inch tape cartridges, IBM-formatted floppy diskettes, and over the Internet using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) from CDIAC's anonymous FTP area or through the CDIAC world wide web homepage at http://cdiac.esd.ornl.gov.
