Summary
Abstract: The NETwork Common Data Format is an extremely flexible storage format for a variety of classes of data. The MRG CDFconvert package is specifically designed to address data conversion issues for gridded datasets stored under the COARDS convention, used almost exclusively for meteorological datasets. CDFconvert is capable of converting regular Cylindrical Equidistant (Lat/Long) and Gaussian (Spherical) netCDF grids into either the Canadian RPN Standard File (FST) or GEMPAK (GEM) file formats. MRG CDFconvert has the flexibility to handle netCDF files generated by a number of sources, including NCEP and ECMWF. User-definable conversion tables make the extension of the package to different datasets possible.
