GEO Quarterly script problem

Dear Fred:

No I do not have issue No. 7, the script that I copied inexpertly was from issue No. 8. I am going to get No.7 as soon as I can, I am now hooked on scripting! Thanks again for the help, I don't know what I would do without people like you and this forum.

Cordially,
Carl Sidor

GEO Quartely script problem

Dear Fred: Thank you very much! That solved the problem and the map now looks more like the example on GEO Quarterly. The only anomaly that I now have is the unusual title appearing in the lower left of the workchart, "Surface winds 1650-1749" This is an annoyance that I can live with. The colorfill...

Geo Quarterly script problem

I copied this script form the Dec. 2005 issue of The GEO Quartely to do a color fill of temperatures, but when I run it, I get a legend that says "Surface winds" with some time numbers, then several solid color screens flash, then a dense network of contours with values in the 5000 range appear. I a...

Analysis software

Bob: MeteOS is a program to configure and run the MM5 model on your computer. He has a demo for Windows, and he promised a 30 day trial period. I haven't heard any more about the trial period, though. His company is called Storm Laboratory, and he is in Bulgaria. Ain't the web a wonderful place? The...

Analysis software

I have recently been checking this out because I want to run a visualization program called Viz5d+. It runs only on Linux. I have seen discussion groups that say you can partition your hard drive and install linux on the partition. Then you have to do a dual boot so that you can run Windows and Linu...

The future of PCGRIDDS 32

Dear Jeff: Count me in with those who use and tremendously enjoy PCGRIDDS 32. The program far outruns my knowledge of meteorology, but that is it's true value. It will have the ability to become even more valuable as my knowledge grows. I am, unfortunately, self educated in meteorology and PCGRIDDS ...

Model data

Dear Mike:

I have had good luck with the Nomad 5 data site: http://nomad5.ncep.noaa.gov/ncep_data/. I use it for data to run PCGRIDDS 32, and then use them for DAWS. Hope this helps.

ftp download problems

Kevin: Thanks for the NOMADS 5 tip, that seems to have fixed my problems. PCGRIDDS32 is up and running with new data, I'm happy to report. Thanks, too, Jeff. The WAFS link came back as "could not find server', so I intend to follow up on it, as my curiosity has now been seriously piqued. I knew that...
