Examples of acceptable text date formats include:
'February 20, 2002'
'20 Feb 2002' '02/20/2002' '2002 02 20' '20020220'
If you wish to use the pull-down lists, leave the text areas blank.
If there is a text entry, it will be used
in preference to the pull-down list selection.
In addition to the date range (above), you may also specify
a range of days to define a season; for example,
if you want to retrieve only winter data, you might select
December 15 through March 14, or January 1 through March 31.
As with the date range, you may enter the begin and end dates
for the season as text (month and day), which will be used instead
of the pull-down selection if it is filled in.
To make no season selection, leave the default entry
(Jan 01 to Dec 31).
