GRIB encoding and decoding software
Entry ID: ECMWF_GRIB

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The ECMWF GRIBEX software has been developed for encoding and
decoding WMO FM-92 GRIB (GRIdded Binary) code messages and some
ancillary subroutines for controlling printing and debugging.

This software only covers the subset of GRIB in products used
and produced at ECMWF.

The GRIBEX software was developed at the European Centre for
Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, Reading, U.K. It is used
operationally at ECMWF and so is liable to change from time to
time as extensions are made to the GRIB format and, in
particular, as local changes are made in the usage of section 1.

A new cycle of this public version is created from time to time
to consolidate operational extensions.
