Although the UPC (Unidata Program Center) can not provide you with the data
you seek, one or more Unidata universities might be willing to do so.  The
easiest way to determine if there is a university willing to relay the data
to you via the IDD is to post your request to the 'ldm-users' or 'needdata'

before they can post, you should subscribe to either/both of these lists
before posting.

Also please NOTE:  posting of email consider to be spam to lists we maintain
will result in immediately being unsubscribed AND banned from the list(s).
