Summary
Abstract: NCEP GFS Model : AWIPS 229 (F) Grid. Global Lat/Lon grid. Model runs are made
at 0, 6, 12, and 18Z, with analysis and forecasts every 3 hours out to 180
hours (7.5 days). Horizontal = 181 by 360 points, resolution 1 degree, Lat/Lon
projection. Vertical = 1000 to 100 hPa mandatory pressure levels (10 levels);
surface, height above ground, pressure layers.
