No apologies neededLinda;
Hope all is going well for you and yours especially now that the hectic holiday season is upon us ^_^
I hate to be a bother, but I have a favor (yes ANOTHER one!) and a question to ask.
A USGS user had asked me whether we would be making "Best Time Series" aggregations for the new NAM nests (4 km CONUS, 6 km Alaska, 3 km Hawaii & 3 km Puerto Rico-Hispaniola). I pleaded ignorance. He pointed me at http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/thredds/catalog/fmrc/NCEP/NAM/CONUS_12km/catalog.html?dataset=fmrc/NCEP/NAM/CONUS_12km/NCEP-NAM-CONUS_12km-noaaport_best.ncd
which I admit I was unaware of - my bad, but I recognize the unique & useful aspect of this product which you are constructing.
The favor is to update the 3rd Summary bullet under Documentation to: NCEP Nonhydrostatic Multiscale Model on B-grid (NMMB) running in the NOAA Environmental Modeling System (NEMS) infrastructure, and Gridpoint Statistical Interpolation (GSI) analysis. You could also add a bullet called NCEP Analysis documentaton / tutorial and link it to http://www.dtcenter.org/com-GSI/users/tutorials/11_2.php .
My question comes from the one the USGS guy asked: are you planning to aggregate Best Time Series for the new NAM nests?
Hope your holidays are joyful!
