Re: 20000626: joining unidata, COMET case studies


I understand you already have a site license for GEMPAK/Garp
so all you need now are some case studies.

Please visit the following URL to obtain any case study you desire.


and select Access COMET Case Studies....and proceed from there.

PLease let me know if I can be of further assistance.

There is NO cost associated with this data.
