McIDAS - Linux - Processing NEXRAD Level III Archived data



Institution: University of South Florida / Dept. of Geography
Package Version: 2002
Operating System: Linux
Hardware Information: Dell PC, Poweredge 2400 Server
Inquiry: Hi Tom,

I believe that you are the guru on archived data processing of a myriad
of image data types.  Could you, please, offer some advice on how to
process archived NEXRAD Level III data that is available from NCDC?

I am mainly interested in the precipitation totals.   I have data for
one station that I ftped from NCDC in a tarfile.  What do I need to do
for McIDAS to display the data?

Thanks much,
Arlene  Laing
