@BeginDescription
Packing reduces the data volume by reducing the precision of the stored numbers.
It is implemented using the NetCDF attributes @env{add_offset} and @env{scale_factor}.
The operator @oper{pack} calculates the attributes @env{add_offset} and @env{scale_factor} for all variables.
The default data type for all variables is automatically changed to 16-bit integer.
Use the CDO option -b to change the data type to a different integer precision, if needed.
Missing values are automatically transformed to the current data type.
