Re: GEMPAK to NetCDF or HDF Conerter?


We have some GEMPAK to netCDF decoders
what data do you have in GEMPAK?

i.e. model data, nids radar, surface obs, upper air, etc.
I believe they are not all decoded the same.

I will compile a list of the decoders we do have and send them out to you.

I apologize for the untimely response, but there is sickness brewing out
here in Boulder and I have not been in the office this week.

We will get you dialed in and thanks again for participating in the
