CM2.x atmosphere 6hr variable list by table

[NOAA bullet] Table A6a: 6-bourly 2-d atmosphere data (longitude, latitude, time:6hour at 0, 6, 12, 18Z)

6-hourly data are instantaneous "snapshots" at 0, 6, 12, 18Z.
To learn about the directory structure used in storing CM2.0 data on this server, see the FAQ How are the CM2.0 model output files arranged in directories on the GFDL Data Portal?.
