23Example of FFI 2010 (b).
24This example illustrating NASA Ames file format index 2010 is based on results
25from Murgatroyd (1969) as displayed in Brasseur and Solomon, Aeronomy of the
26Middle Atmosphere, Reidel, 1984 (p.36). It is representative of the mean zonal
27wind distribution in the winter hemisphere as a function of latitude and height.
28The first date on line 7 (1st of January 1969) is fictitious.
29From line 10 (NXDEF = 1) we know that the latitude points are defined by
30X(i) = X(1) + (i-1)DX1 for i = 1, ..., NX
31with X(1) = 0 deg (line 11), DX1 = 10 deg (line 8) and NX = 9 (line 9).

33The files included in this data set illustrate each of the 9 NASA Ames file
34format indices (FFI). A detailed description of the NASA Ames format can be
