Hmm...Well, I know that DA did have satellite wind capability a few years back, and Tim seemed to think that the module may still be operational in Equinox. I've noticed that after manually importing other types of data, the status window does say "decoding satellite winds" during data processing (i...

Satellite Derived Winds

Hi All, I'm trying to test out DA's satellite wind capability over the Eastern Pacific, but when I attempted to add this link to my data retreival list: ftp://www.orbit.nesdis.noaa.gov/pub/smcd/opdb/goes/winds/g9hicdrft/cdnhlatest the retreival module simply "got stuck" saying: "initializing drivers...

Question about a remark in a METAR report

Hi Everyone, I've noticed the abbreviation "ACSL" followed by directions in the remarks section of a number of METAR reports, but I'm not sure what it means. Here's an example of how it appears: KBAB 052355Z 17016KT 10SM FEW120 BKN250 28/03 A2982 RMK ACSL NE-E SLP099 ESTMD SLP 56010 Anyone here have...

Hi Randy and Wally, Well, it seems to me that I used to have a problem with the print feature where the printer would just feed out a blank page when I tried to print today, it worked just fine. I used to have to copy the map, paste it into a Word document, and then print. I'm running Windows ME, ha...

Problem with Cressman Wind Analysis

Hi Tim and others, I was experimenting around with the different analyis routines today, and ran into a problem with version 1.0f. I clicked File>Prefrences, hit the analysis tab, and changed the analysis routine to "Cressman." After analyzing SLP, temperature, humidity, and perhaps the altimeter se...

GRIB import error

Hi Tim, I was on the Statistical Modelling Branch's page today, and decided to try importing a MOS GRIB file into DAWS. I got a GRIB file from the following website: ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/DF.gr1/DC.mos/DS.metcns/RD.20040411/ and booted DAWS. I clicked "Import," found the file, and sel...

Hi, There are a number of resources out there. As far as books go, Tim's Weather Map Handbook has information on history and biases on most models used by American forecasters. He has one page of text on each model, so it's not like a treatise, but there's some interesting information in these pages...

10-5 thickness analysis problem in version 1.0e

Hi Everyone, DAWS seems to have trouble doing a 1000-500 MB thickness analysis on a map with a small scale ratio. I was doing work this evening with a map zoomed in on northern CA/surrounding areas, and surface data was working fine. I then decided to plot 700 MB station plots with a 10-5 thickness ...

Hi Carl,

Here are a couple of websites where you can download either the TCL or TK language. It appears that Bufget is written in TK.

TK:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/tcl/tk846-src.zip

TCL:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/tcl/tcl846-src.zip

Hope that helps! :)
