Distributed GAME-T2 Servers
Prof. Matsumoto, Univ. of Tokyo, Japan, has been collecting routine meteorological observation data from several countries in Asia. This dataset is one of his achievement. In Nepal, more than 250 weather stations have been maintained and datasets for 1997-2002 (GAME-2 Data Collection Period) are prepared for scientific use. Data files other than 1998's are protected by password.
