NetCDF operators (NCO) version 4.4.8

Version 4.4.8 of the netCDF Operators (NCO) has been released. NCO is an Open Source package that consists of a dozen standalone, command-line programs that take netCDF files as input, then operate (e.g., derive new data, average, print, hyperslab, manipulate metadata) and output the results to screen or files in text, binary, or netCDF formats.

The NCO project is coordinated by Professor Charlie Zender of the Department of Earth System Science, University of California, Irvine. More information about the project, along with binary and source downloads, are available on the SourceForge project page.

Site Visit: Metropolitan State University of Denver

MSU

On February 5, 2014, three Unidata Program Center staff members paid a visit to Professor Sam Ng and his collaborator Chris Kimmett at Metropolitan State University of Denver. We had the opportunity to sit in on Professor Ng's “Weather Analysis Techniques” course for undergraduate meteorology majors in the MSU department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.

MSU-Denver is the recipient of one of Unidata's 2014 Community Equipment Awards. Their proposal solicited funds to update the meteorology program's Local Data Manager (LDM) server to better handle current data loads and also serve as a beta-test site for the AWIPS II Environmental Data EXchange (EDEX) server, giving students the opportunity to the National Weather Service's most up-to-date forecasting and weather analysis software package. The grant also funded upgrades to the MSU-Denver meteorology department's computer lab, allowing students to access the AWIPS II CAVE client and improving 3-D visualization performance for Unidata's Integrated Data Viewer (IDV).

Where is the GFS 0.25-degree Model Output?

GFS

As many in the Unidata community are aware, on January 14, 2015 the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) began producing Global Forecast System (GFS) model output with 0.25-degree resolution for use in weather forecasting operations. This output is now available to be added to the Unidata Internet Data Distribution (IDD) system's CONDUIT data stream. So where is it?

National Flood Interoperability Experiment Webinar Series

CUASHI

The National Flood Interoperability Experiment (NFIE) is a project sponsored by the National Weather Service, the University of Alabama, and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUASHI) to help build a new high resolution, near real-time hydrologic simulation and forecasting model for the United States. The University of Alabama and the recently opened National Water Center (located on the Tuscaloosa campus of the University of Alabama) will be hosting a seven-week Summer Institute associated with the NFIE in June and July 2015.

A series of free webinars describing the NFIE program structure and the information and modeling sources available, as well as potential lines of research that could be pursued through the NFIE training program, are being held in the winter and spring of 2015. The next webinar will be held Wednesday, February 18th at 3:00 pm ET.
