This page documents some work done on the 'next generation' Monte Carlo landing prediction code hosted at GitHub.
The code may be downloaded using the
$ git clone git://github.com/rjw57/cusf-landing-prediction.git
After that, the standard
make tool can be used.
The code as presented requires the GLib2 libraries to be installed because they have good, tested, thread-aware random number generators (amongst other things).
This branch contains a script under the
pydap/ directory which uses OpeNDAP via PyDAP to fetch the data rather than the old GRIB-based system. This has the following advantages:
The script itself outputs a slightly different format than the original GRIB grabber which makes the parser a little easier to implement.
