Re: [conduit] information needed about CONDUIT use

I was the troublemaker..(at least in NCEP's eyes at least I am sure) that pointed out at the CONDUIT/AMS meeting that 0.5 degree has no real advantages for me and only consumes more bandwidth (I am limited in that respect) and computing power. It doesn't have any more vertical levels (like 825mb..which I need). I agree with Jim Nelson's e-mail that the 47-level GFS would be very good to have. I am already getting 7,5,3,2,1 mb data from this model from CPC, but would like the extra levels in the lower atmosphere as well. The 47-level would consume more bandwidth and CPU/disk..but at least I would be getting something better.
