Hello Gembud list,
While our reception of satellite and model data are good here at NPS, GARP
crashes upon request for surface or upper air observations. We've noticed this
problem, intermittently for the last week or so. If a particular day is
unavailable, data for the following day, starting at 0000 UTC, can sometimes be
fine, which seems to suggest that once a particular day's gempak file is
"corrupted", it is completely corrupted for the entire day.
Does anyone know of a common cause of this problem? If it is a problem caused
by just a single bad datum point, is it possible to "surgically" remove the
offending point from the .gem file? Is there a way to search the 'dcmetr.log'
file to find the culprit? What would I usually search for? (Or am I barking up
the wrong tree?)
Thanks in advance for any guidance,
