Software, Data and Computing

Using ECMWF computing facilities: the batch system

This lesson will focus on ECGATE - ECMWF's server dedicated to the users' work. You will learn how to run tasks in batch, submit, query and cancel jobs, correct common errors and check the accounting database.

MARS ECMWF's meteorological archive

The Meteorological Archival and Retrieval System (MARS) enables users to access ECMWF’s data. This lesson will teach you how to create a customised data retrieval.

Metview for the Single-Column Model (SCM)

This lesson will provide a quick overview of Metview's main features and enable you to use Metview to analyse and edit input data for the single-column model, run the model and visualise its output.

Exploring meteorological data through OGC web services

Web services are used to visualise geographical data. This lesson describes web services, data standards and outlines what OGC and INSPIRE are.

MARS – advanced retrievals, data manipulation and computations

The Meteorological Archival and Retrieval System (MARS) enables users to access ECMWF’s data. This lesson will look at MARS requests and explore its compute capability.

ecCodes: Decoding with GRIB tools
