met text to ARL format

Post by yunhal »

Hello,

I used the HYSPLIT program to convert ARL to text, but now I need to convert this text file back to ARL format.
I couldn't find the way to do this. Currently, I am trying to convert this to netcdf and then to ARL format. However, I couldn't use WRF-ARW to ARL conversion for my netcdf, as this doesn't match with WRF-ARM file format.

I wonder if anyone has a program/script to convert the text met data back to ARL format. Please let me know if you have a good suggestion.

Thanks in advance!

It was done with the PC Windows-based HYSPLIT to convert ARL data to text files.

It's possible to do it with a MeteoInfoLab script. Please find online example on it (http://www.meteothinker.com/examples/me ... b2arl.html).

Are you referring to concentrations or meteorological data? What specific menu did you use?

We talked about meteorological data. I used Meteorology -> Display Data -> Text Profile to convert ARL data to text files. After I did some calculation, I saved the results with the same text format. Now I want to convert the text files back to ARL data format.

To create a user generated meteorological dataset you will need to go to Meteorology/Convert to ARL/User Entered/
