File Descriptions

This section describes the content and format of each of the nine files that comprise this NDP (see Table 3). Because CDIAC distributes the data set in several ways (e.g., via anonymous FTP and on floppy diskette), each of the nine files is referenced by both an ASCII file name, which is given in lower-case, bold-faced type (e.g., ndp071.txt) and a file number. The remainder of this section describes (or lists, where appropriate) the contents of each file.

Table 3. Content, size, and format of data files.
