The NCEI Blended Winds product files have changed to better adhere to Climate-Forecast Conventions and CoastWatch Data Services.  Data values are unaffected.  Only metadata/variable names have been modified:

  • Variables
    • wind => windspeed
    • taux => x_tau
    • tauy => y_tau

Near real-time files include these changes and all prior science quality datafiles will be replaced.  ERDDAP will also be updated.  Science quality data may appear inaccessible until the completion of the update.
