SAL Home DATA Libraries


LATS (The Library of AMIP Data Transmission Standards) is a library of software routines to output gridded data developed by PCMDI in support of AMIP II and other intercomparison projects. The primary function of LATS is to establish and implement a convention/standard for gridded data and thus facilitate data handling and exchange. The LATS Application Programmer Interface (API) is designed to be simple to understand and use. FORTRAN and C APIs are provided.

LATS applications output data in either the WMO "GRIdded Binary" (GRIB) format or in the NetCDF format under the COARDS convention.
