Auto renaiming of ECMWF daily reanalysis data file to ECMG

Post by mstill »

Hi,

I'm converting the ECMWF Interim dataset to ARL format to be used by HYSPLIT and on running the check file menu the name of the Meteorological model is displayed as "ECMG". Shouldn't the name be ECMWF? Initially, it doesn't matter but when on plotting the trajectories with default settings, I have ECMG Meteorological data written as the title over all my plots. I thought it would be good to bring it to your notice if it's a bug or not.

Thanks,

The HYSPLIT-formatted meteorology coding only allows for a 4-character descriptor of the meteorology file, so it cannot be ECMWF.
