Re: [gembud] virtual potential temperature (theta_v) from surface observations

Pat,

Yeah, seems like one of those questions that as soon as you call tech support, 
suddenly it works. :)  THTV itself works fine now (though Iâm certain it didnât 
when I tried it yesterday), but subtracting 273.15 does not ("Parameter SUB( is 
not calculable.â)  Nonetheless, having it in Kelvin works just fine for what I 
want, so I can roll with that.  Thanks for the help!
