In the text format of the forecast-model soundings, there is a section at the beginning of the file that has four-character abbreviations followed by numerical values. I can figure out easily what some of these are, e.g., PRSS=pressure, T02M=temperature at 2 m, but other abbreviations aren't so obvious to me. Is there a complete list of the abbreviations and units?
