Re: [conduit] Sref derived products

I would be interested in those products as well.  In addition I have put in
the request to NCEP to add Helicity to the GFS model output fields. As I
understand it since they now have a quasi-unified post processor for both
the NAM and the GFS now that generating the Helicity GRIB products should be
doable. It is not available over NOAAPORT and to my knowledge anywhere else
at this time.

If anyone else is interested in receiving the Helicity GRIB data from GFS
you may want to contact NCEP as well.

Subject: [conduit] Sref derived products


I am a new consumer of the conduit data feed. We have been very much
intereseted in derived products from both the GEFS and SREF ensembles
therefore we modified our pqact files to request the conduit feed. Although
we are getting SREF members, it appears that it is only the data from the
*pgrb212* files which are the processed data (ie., u,v,p,t,q etc). The
derived products from each member of the ensemble like cloud cover, cape etc
are in the *pgrb243*  files which currently not being distributed over

I would like to inquire if there is any interest in these products being
added. I am told if there is sufficient numbers in the CONDUIT-receiving
community who want this data, then unidata will interact with NCEP folks to
see if the data can be added (after the June moratorium).
