Problem

I downloaded CAMS Global atmospheric composition data. The data server web interface offers two daily timestamps, 00:00 an d12:00 UTC, but the downloaded data contains only the data for 00:00 UTC, data for 12:00 UTC is missing.

Answer

Until 21 June 2016 CAMS Global data was produced only once a day, with basetime 00:00 UTC.

From 21 June 2016 CAMS Global data is produced twice daily, with basetime 00:00 and 12:00 UTC.

The data server web interface does not reflect this change and always offers both basetimes.
