GRIB is the WMO standard format for the gridded data such as meteorological forecasts and analyses. This seminar starts with the differences between grib version 1 and version 2. Then I will cover making GrADS control files, moving scripts from wgrib to wgrib2, exporting grib data, making averages, regridding, and converting binary data into grib.

The security procedures to all interested non-NOAA attendees  for entry into WWB are: You need to give your name, affiliation, and phone #  to the security at the front desk when you arrive.  You need to have a valid photo ID upon entry.  Moreover,  you need to be accompanied during your stay here. I am sorry for the inconvenience.  It may help to make a printout of this announcement and show to the guards for your purpose of visit when u come.
