We manage a supercomputing facility for our Member and Co-operating States, providing vital resources for computer modelling of the global atmosphere and ocean and for weather forecasting research. Here you can find out about the specification and set-up of our facilities, how to get access to them, and where to go for support and guidance.
The following software packages are available from ECMWF.
Member and Co-operating States' national meteorological services should first check with Software Support for availability of additional software.
|BUFRDC||Encodes and decodes WMO FM-94 BUFR code messages. Includes tools for conversion between BUFR and CREX.||Free download|
|ecCodes||Encodes and decodes WMO FM-92 GRIB messages (editions 1 and 2) and WMO FM-94 BUFR messages (editions 3 and 4). |
Note: ecCodes is an evolution of GRIB API
Enables users to run a large number of programs (with dependencies on each other and on time) in a controlled environment.
|EMOSLIB||Includes interpolation software and BUFR, CREX encoding and decoding routines.||Free download|
|GRIB API|| |
Encodes and decodes WMO FM-92 GRIB edition 1 and edition 2 messages.
|Magics||Supports the plotting of contours, wind fields, observations, satellite images, symbols, text, axes and graphs (including boxplots).||Free download|
Accesses, manipulates and visualises meteorological data.
|Aeolus||ECMWF and KNMI develop the Aeolus Level-2B wind retrieval software, the main output of which are HLOS wind observations, which are suitable for use in NWP and meteorological research.||Request download|
