The following defines the format of the CSV output files:

Notes: Spaces are used to separate the comma-separated values in the samples for readability and are not found in the actual files. In the following format files the descriptions i.e. (nnnn) are only used as an aid in estimating the size of the data records/files. The indication that the value is either a signed integer of signed floating point (i.e. (snn) or (sn.n)) is based on examination of the vendor documentation and in no way does is guarantee that the values that are not listed as signed are not in fact signed values. Again the inclusion of the sign is only used as an aid in estimating the size of the data records/files.


1. Required FTP directory:

The following directory structure must be available on each computer that LDAD data will be FTPed to:

/data/fxa/LDAD/preTmp

/data/fxa/LDAD/FTPdir

Data will be FTPed to /data/fxa/LDAD/FTPdir directory. After the FTP completes the file will be renamed, via FTP, to the /data/fxa/LDAD/preTmp directory. This will insure that the file transfer is complete before the file is available in the /data/fxa/LDAD/preTmp directory.

Note: In the event of a transmission failure a file or files may be left in the /data/fxa/LDAD/FTPdir directory, it is the responsible of the receiving system to clean-up this directory, recommend a cron job to delete all files older than 2 hours in this directory,

This is the only authorized directory structure for Linux/UNIX systems, i.e. the AWIPS data server, the RSA MARSS preprocessor, the Product Distributor, etc.


2. Lightning Data Product Transport

All lightning data products (CGLSS, LLPS, LDAR, LPLWS) are transported via LDM. There are two upstream hosts PPR-1/2 for the lightning data products to the Ingest server and AWIPS Data server, and the FTP server for NASA and PPR3. LDM is available from Unidata http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/ldm/index.html, we are currently using version 6.0.14. LDM is used to provide a real-time data distribution of the data sets.


3. File Format:


AssetID
DateTime(dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss)
MeasurementID, InstrumentLevel, Measurement, QCFlag

MeasurementID, InstrumentLevel, Measurement, QCFlag


The first line of the file contains the AssetID, followed by one line that contains the Date Time record, to be followed by multiple lines of measurements. The definition of these fields follows:


AssetID (integer) (nnnn) Note: This value will be filled with leading zeros so that all values are 4 digits.


DateTime (string) (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss) – The DateTime is the time associated with the observation (data time).


MeasurementID (integer) (nnnn)


InstrumentLevel (floating point) (nn.n) in meters


Measurement (floating point/Integer/String) type depends on the actual measured value.



QCFlag: 0 - OK, 1 - Out of Range, 2 - Questionable, 3 - Not Tested, 4 – Missing data,


(note: With the addition of the QC flag 4 – Missing data, the ‘M’ will no longer be used. This will insure that all numeric fields will always contain numeric entries.)

[MFFG unique flags, First Guess unchanged, Auto or Manual mode]

5 - MFFG Auto Mode Algorithm good data, 6 - MFFG Manual Mode Algorithm good data Operator no action, 7 - MFFG Auto Mode Algorithm bad data, 8 - MFFG Manual Mode Algorithm bad data Operator no action, 10 - MFFG Manual Mode Algorithm good data Operator flagged as bad data, 12 - MFFG Manual Mode Manual Mode Algorithm bad data Operator flagged as bad data;


[MFFG unique flags, First Guess changed, Manual mode]

14 - MFFG Manual Mode Algorithm good data Operator no action, 16 - MFFG Manual Mode Algorithm bad data Operator no action, 18 - MFFG Manual Mode Algorithm good data Operator flagged as bad data, 20 - MFFG Manual Mode Manual Mode Algorithm bad data Operator flagged as bad data;

Note: If you subtract 8 from these (First Guess changed) values they are the same as the First Guess unchanged flags.


9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19 reserved for MFFG but not used.


RTAMPS Edit Flag: 0 – Unedited, 1 – Edited, 3 – Bad. The wind data is flagged with these values x 1, and the thermodynamic data will be flagged with these values x 10. Since there is only one QC flag and both wind and thermodynamic data occur in the same report, the range of values for the RTAMPS Edit Flag is 0 to 33. Examples: 0 both sets are unedited; 10 thermo edited and wind unedited; 30 wind unedited thermo bad; 3 wind bad and thermo unedited.



RTAMPS data and MFFG data are not processed (quality checked) by MARSS.


Note: Mini-Sodar, 915 MHz Profiler, 50 MHz Profiler consensus files, LDAR, LPLWS, and LLP/CGLSS data are the exceptions, in that they support data records, see below. The 50 MHz Profiler MFFG data does follow the single measurement standard.

The file naming convention is as follows:


TypeName.AssetID.datetime.csv - The datetime is the time associated with the observation (data time).


AssetID (integer) (nnnn)

datetime (string) (yyyymmddhhmmss)


Note: For RemoteObs the file extension will be metar verses csv.

For the WSR-74C image files the file extension will be tif verses csv.

hh: 2 digit hour of product in Zulu
mm: 2 digit minute of product in Zulu
ss: 2 digit seconds of product in Zulu
Product: 3 characters representing the type of product.
Currently they are CAP, MAX, VIL, and VHR.

(see Note, below)

File Name Field Description


“N” is the standard World Meteorological Organization assigned station identifier. In the case of the Western Range (KVBG) Balloon Release Facility this code is 72393. For the Eastern Range (KXMR) Balloon Release Facility this code is 74794. And for the Ascension (FHAW) Balloon Release Facility this code is 61902.

“ID1” is a fifteen-character field with the following characters:


Character

Options

Meaning

1-6


Six alphanumeric characters representing the operation number associated with this particular balloon flight.

7

H or L

Represents High or Low Resolution data

8-11

0001-9999

Four-digits representing the balloon release number for that year.

12

1 - 6

The specific AMPS SPS through which data was processed.

13

O or R or

1 - 9

One character representing the transmission iteration from AMPS. “O” is an original transmission from AMPS. “R” represents data that has been replayed from AMPS. Note that there is no feature within AMPS to uniquely identify data that has been replayed more than once. 1 – 9 indicate that this is the re-edit (1-9) of a previously released mission.

14

1 - 6

The AMPS/RTAMPS System Identifier

1 is WR #1

2 is WR #2

3 is ER #1

4 is ER #2

5 is Ascension #1

6 is Ascension #2

15

A - O

One alphanumeric character representing the balloon type used on this particular balloon flight. Specific balloon designations are:

A - Latex 300g

B - Latex 600g

C - Latex 800g

D - Latex 1000g

E - Latex 1200g

F - Stabilized 350g

G - Stabilized 800g

H - Stabilized 1000g

I - Stabilized 1200g

J - Clear Jimsphere

O - Other


“ID2” is a four character alphanumeric field that can be:


Options

Meaning

005k, 010k, etc.

Partial files. The elevation shown represents the highest elevation reported within that file. Note that this highest elevation is approximate and may be higher than stated. The actual height reported within a given file is dependent on the quality of data at the maximum required reporting height for that segment. If the last point(s) within that segment are bad, RTAMPS will continue collecting data until acceptable data is obtained.

BIGx

Full files. The “x” is the 1-9th archive file with “9” always being the final archive file. This includes the case where no archives were selected (first and only file will be “BIG9”).

RAOB

RAwinsonde OBservation (in synoptic file format) based on the BIG9 file.

ROBn

RAwinsonde OBservation (in synoptic file format) where n = 0 to 9, that are produced before the termination of the flight. ROB0 is always the 100mb observation.


“YYYY” is the year. “MM” is the month. “DD” is the day. “HH” is the hour. “MM” is the minute. “SS” is the second. All dates and times are based on Universal Coordinated Time (UTC). Time is the moment of first balloon motion as detected and reported by AMPS.

Note: Files with the suffix “*.txt” are in ASCII format and are generated only for internal RSA use prior to releasing the data to customers. Customers will use those files with the “*.bufr” suffix and should never see files with the “*.txt” suffix.

Notes:

We will only send North side codes.
We will select either the North or South side to be sent.
Barometric pressure is not currently sent from the towers.
All lightning products are defined as data records not discrete measurements.
The mini-Sodar and Profiler data sets also contain embedded data records.
The tower sigma theta is the 1,5 or 10-minute standard deviation of the wind direction in degrees.
