History The first version of   MOONLIMB   was released in 1997. Data calculated from this version are used by   Eberhard Riedel   in his graze prediction program   GRAZEREG.
The latest version   MOONLIMB - ML2004B   was completed in February 2004. These data are currently used in various research projects by the author.
Description A short description of the latest version   MOONLIMB - ML2004B   is available   here.
