Table 1.

A summary of the IGP observing system. Variables measured are T = temperature; S = salinity; p = pressure; O2 = oxygen; u, υ, w = velocities; SST = sea surface temperature; CFC = chlorofluorocarbons; SF6 = sulfur hexafluoride; RH = relative humidity; LWP = liquid water path; PPN = precipitation; LWC = liquid water content; Tdew = dewpoint temperature; SW = shortwave radiation; LW = longwave radiation; q = specific humidity. Instruments marked with an asterisk had data broadcast via satellite and hence were available for operational forecasting.
