Lineage 2011-06-02T00:00:00Z Subset 0.5-deg NCEP GFS daily from nomads server via OPeNDAP and Python. 2023-01-24T21:20:00Z Removed erroneous inclusion of "net" in the long_name and standard_name of the variables dlwrfsfc (surface_downwelling_longwave_flux) and dswrfsfc (surface_downwelling_shortwave_flux). Added variables ulwrfsfc (surface_upwelling_longwave_flux) and uswrfsfc (surface_upwelling_shortwave_flux) for users wishing to compute net downward fluxes (e.g., dlwrfsfc minus ulwrfsfc and dswrfsfc minus uswrfsfc).
