16Example of FFI 1001 (a).
17This example illustrating NASA Ames file format index 1001 is based on the US Standard
18Atmosphere 1976 as quoted in G. Brasseur and S. Solomon, Aeronomy of the Middle
19Atmosphere, Reidel, 1984 (p. 46). It provides typical values of middle latitude averaged air
20concentration and temperature as a function of height (expressed here as the pressure
21level). The first date on line 7 (1st of January 1976) is fictitious since the parameters are
22yearly averages. We have inserted 3 additional lines into the original table near the tropo-
23pause and stratopause levels, to illustrate the use of the "missing value" flags (see line 12).

25The files included in this data set illustrate each of the 9 NASA Ames file format indices
26(FFI). A detailed description of the NASA Ames format can be found on the Web site of the
