attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Global monthly derived winds and Ekman transports can be obtained for any

ERD was established at the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Meteorology and
Oceanography Center (FNMOC) to take advantage of the Navy's global
oceanographic and meteorological databases. FNMOC produces operational
forecasts of the state of the atmosphere and the ocean several times daily
and maintains archives of several important parameters, such as sea level
pressure and temperature. ERD derives a number of well-known environmental
data and index products which are routinely distributed to researchers at
many state and federal laboratories, as well as to academic and international
