A copy of the data are available for download from the provided URL. Furthermore, the data are freely available to download via www.earthsystemgrid.org. Data were downloaded by Katherine Sadler (Polar research assistant, The School of Earth Sciences, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, VIC 3010) and requested from UCAR by Katherine Sadler and data were mailed on a hard drive. The website for the data is here: http://www2.mmm.ucar.edu/rt/amps/ The efforts to produce the data were sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs and the NSF UCAR and Lower Atmospheric Facilities Oversight Section. It is a collaboration of the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the Byrd Polar Research Center of The Ohio State University. Data were then processed by Katherine Sadler to get them into a usable form i.e. converted from grib to nc, polar stereographic to latlon and file reduced to MSLP field only to reduce the huge file size.
