Meteorology / Help

Meteorological data fields to run the model are usually already available or can be created from routine analysis archives or forecast model outputs. More complete descriptions of the different data sets are available on-line. The meteorological data available through the menu system are summarized in the following sections.

The meteorology menu is divided into four sections: data FTP, data conversion, data display, and utility programs.

More detailed information about the format of the ARL packed data is available. In addition, various library routines and utility programs are provided to manipulate both the GRIB and ARL packed data files.
