Each (major) section has a "Subject:" line, so you can search on the
subject title above to find the section quickly.
Subject: 2) Overview
This section used to contain weather data: satellite images,
forecast maps, soundings, and so on. However, with the proliferation
of many great sites which present lists of weather links, I've decided
to remove this section and replace it with a list of a few of these
comprehensive sites from which you can obtain many others. This will
let me focus on the research data portions of the FAQ which are
more important and interesting to me professionally.
For weather related software, see the research data section (part 3).
I may add it here in the future.
