Abstract

this is the global GFS data, every 6 hrs from April 17 2010 at 00:00. It is ready to be used by the Puff dispersion model, see example lines of code

Note i have defined the location of the wind field, the U, V and Z variables. I specify the model as reanalysis and this allows Puff to read the model file
