File prefixes from data download are listed below. The file contents are specified and the measurement is described briefly. For more details, see the header of the data file.

Time parameters

Time: Most of the Atlantis data is time-aligned to Start_UTC, which is 1 minute time resolution in integer seconds. The files that aren't aligned to Start_UTC are VOCsGCFID, which uses GCFID_Start_UTC / GCFID_Stop_UTC and ClNO2Cl2 which uses CIMStimewave.
