20050307:data decoders



Hi Nazario,

The original data is in GRIB, what format do you desire to enter into
Matlab?


Also, is it the re-analysis you want..or the original model outputs?


..we do not have the re-analysis.

Are you planning on getting the data from Unidata? Which model, and which
grid(s)?...or do you already have access to the data?

Thank you,

Jeff
