Grid size: 96 grid cells (long.) x 48 grid cells (lat.)

The model grid is uniform along the longitude with grid box size of 3.75 and nearly uniform along the latitude (approx. 3.75). The longitudes are numerated eastwards starting from the Greenwich meridian (0, 3.75E, 7.5E, ..., 3.75W).

The latitudes are numerated from South to North.
