Data collected by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), compiled and analyzed by Robert J. Vanderbei.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) collects and archives weather data from thousands of collection sites around the globe. Perusing this list, Robert J. Vanderbei noticed that McGuire Air Force Base, located not far from Princeton NJ, is one of the archived weather stations. Since the data is archived in one year batches, he wrote a unix shell script to grab the 55 annual data files for McGuire and then assemble the relevant pieces of data into a single file.
