Re: TAMDAR data


I am able to plot moisture profiles from the files being decoded by
dcacars (5.8.3a) both using nsharp and acprof (the version of snprof I
provide that uses the ship format surface files). Ensure you are using
the latest version to keep up with the change in format of the NetCDF

For example, a 1200-1259Z plot around San Antonio produces the attached

Since the NetCDF files have several different possibilities for a
moisture sensor, there are several attempts made to determine a dewpoint
temperature depending on what id provided. If you can provide me
with a specific aircraft ID and time I can check the data stream to
verify that specific instances of rh, mixr, tmpc, vapor pressure, etc
are being checked.

Note that you can list the data with SFLIST to verify the data being
decoded for specific aircraft.

Is anyone using NSHARP to view TAMDAR aicraft data?  I'm seeing flights
into/out of airports that should be TAMDAR aircraft, but I don't see the
moisture profile that should be available from the TAMDAR reports.
