Summary
Abstract: NCEP GFS Model : AWIPS 228 (A) Grid. Global Lat/Lon grid. Model runs are made
at 0, 6, 12, and 18Z, with forecasts hourly from 22 to 32 hours, then every 12
hours from 192 to 384 hours (8 to 16 days). Horizontal= 73 by 144 points,
resolution 2.5 degree, Lat/Lon projection. Vertical = 1000 to 100 hPa mandatory
pressure levels (10 levels); surface, height above ground, pressure layers.
