Using AMET on Valkyr

Installing new AQ Obs Data by Year

  • Data are available here:
  • Install to /home/AMET/AMET_v13/obs/AQ
  • Find the file that you want to download and copy the alphanumeric part of the HTTP address into the following command. Also change the name of the filename to download (e.g. 2014_Obs.tar.gz)
  •  perl /usr/local/etc/gdown/ "" 2014_Obs.tar.gz

  • Note that when you untar the new obs data you'll need to move it to the appropriate AMET directory. For example, for the 2014 archive it will unpack into obs/2014. Move the 2014 directory to /home/AMET/AMET_v13/obs/AQ
