20050104: Composite Study


The program GDSTAT is used to compute several fields (including average) of 
gridded data sets (which could be from your upper air data through OABSND) or 
reanalysis grids.

Hey Gembuds,

I'm working on an interesting little project here that will involve
creating composite (upper air) maps of various severe weather cases.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to approach this task.  It would
seem that Gempak is limited in this respect, as I may be compositing
data from dozens of case dates.

For the very basics, let's say I wanted to create a composite (average)
500mb Height map using gridded data from 25 case dates.  Would this be
beyond Gempak's capabilities?  Would I be better off using Reanalysis
data and some other tools (eg, NCO utils) to first create the averaged
gridded data, then import that into gempak after the number crunching
has been completed?

Any help would be most appreciated!
