[IDV #FOR-741886]: adde.ucar.edu - Dataset Global

     The problem of WV global dataset should be fixed by now. Thanks for 
reporting this issue.
     By the way, GINICOMP dataset also has very good coverage european area 
(whole Northern Hemisphere) and this is more reliable dataset, please give it a
