Re: 19990303: RUC cdl

Tom,

Thanks for the note about Z_sfc mistake.  It's been corrected and it's
available on the ftp decoders space.

Don:

You may not be the right person, but I've noticed an error in the
schema of the ruc netcdf file you sent me:  the dimensions for terrain
are wrong:

      float Z_sfc(record, y, x) ;
              Z_sfc:long_name = "terrain" ;
              Z_sfc:units = "gp m" ;
              Z_sfc:_FillValue = -9999.0 ;
              Z_sfc:navigation = "nav" ;

I say "wrong" because I don't think terrain is a function of forecast
hour....either that, or the RUC is _quite_ the model...

Later,

tom
