armbe: ARM Best Estimate Data Products

The ARM Best Estimate data products are ARM datastreams specifically tailored to climate modelers for use in the evaluation of global climate models. They contain a best estimate of several cloud, radiation, and atmospheric quantities. The ARMBE data set was created to showcase all the flagship products of ARM. Data formerly known as CMBE are now available under ARMBE.
