Data and Image Downloads


Web Browsing Utility

Our Archive Browser utility can be used to display data and images for both Active Sites and Inactive Sites, from which content can be manually saved to disk.


File Downloads

Selective data and image file downloads can be performed using anonymous FTP through a web browser.

Batch data and image file downloads can be performed using an FTP client configured with PSD's anonymous FTP server information:

PROMPT>   ftp ftp1.esrl.noaa.gov
User>   anonymous
Password>   "e-mail address"
FTPprompt>   cd psd2/data/realtime

Following the base-path location, /psd2/data/realtime, the directory heirarchy has a specific naming structure based on the following data and time elements:

LEVEL 1:   Instrument
LEVEL 2:   DataType
LEVEL 3:   SiteID
LEVEL 4:   Year
LEVEL 5:   DayOfYear

The available instruments, data types, sites, times, and data descriptions/formats can be accessed through the Site Inventory - Map utility. The path data elements (levels 1-3) for selected data and image types is as follows:
