Re: gempak gfs > 84h has C001 attached to field names


That would mean that the fields have the ensemble bits identifying the
grids from the control c001 run.
It appears that the onedeg gfs fields were only posted through 84 hours
for the 12Z rather than through 180 as is normal.

The patterns I am using are:

CONDUIT ST.opnl/MT.gfs
       PIPE    decoders/dcgrib2 -d
       -e GEMTBL=/home/gempak/NAWIPS/gempak/tables


       PIPE    decoders/dcgrib2 -d
       -e GEMTBL=/home/gempak/NAWIPS/gempak/tables

Note that I file to hourly ensemble files, while using the gribkey.tbl
file for the MT.gfs file to handle the gfs.

Starting with this morning's (Aug 05, 2005) 12Z GFS on the 003 grid, it appears that all field names have a "C001" attached to the name (e.g. HGHT becomes HGHTC001, etc...) for all hours after the 84 hour forecast. Is anyone else seeing this? Is it a bug, or a new "feature"? It's making it difficult to get to the fields by their former names.
