data.aggregate.ames generates NASA-Ames formatted data. The outputted data is defined by a “record type” that corresponds to the type of data being generated. Output is on standard output.

NOTE: data.aggregate.ames is deprecated, data.aggregate.ebas should be used for data reporting to the World Data Center for Aerosols.

Available record types are determined by the ames configuration directory.

Command Line Usage

data.aggregate.ames [station] record start [end]


start and end

The time specifiers for the data to be retrieved. Start is inclusive while end is exclusive, so all data contained within the half open interval [start,end) will be returned. Any convertible time format is accepted.


The station identifier code. For example 'brw'. Case insensitive.


A code specifying the type of data to be generated. Examples include:

  • neph_L2_10um - EUSAAR TSI 3-wavelength neph data.
  • psap_L1_1um - EUSAAR PSAP data.
  • cpc_L0 - EUSAAR CNC data.

In general the record is composed of a type (“neph”), a level code (“L1”), and if applicable the cut size.

data.aggregate.ames sgp neph_L0NRT_1um 2008.0 2008.25
