Re: Can I obtain case-study material for a CU-Colo.Springs course I a m teaching?

Hi Bruce, 

The COMET case study library is freely available to any and all who want
to participate.

To obtain the data simply go to:


this page has some info as well.

The page that lists all cases available is:


From here you can select the cases you desire and get them via tape
distribution...soon to ba available via CD ( in about a month or so ) or
ftp individual datasets..

The FTP process is time consuming and changes the names of the files to
add uniqeness for download, so we suggest ordering the complete tape.

The tape will include some data in GEMPAK format, as well as native
formats handled by GEMPAK decoders...You can use whatever visualization
tools you prefer and work for you, but these cases are best utilized when
viewed via GEMPAK.

If you have not installed GEMPAK yet, I would encourage you to do so.

GEMPAK is freely available via Unidata at:


Please let me know if I can help any further.

Thank you,

-Jeff (Colo Springs native)
