Pressure Levels from ERA INTERMIN on ECMWF data

Postby alberto » Wed Apr 03, 2013 4:49 am

Hello people, I am new here.

I have some set of ECMWF era interim data to work with but I need to know what are exactly the pressure levels inside my files... I practialy want to know what is the pressure for each mod level that comes in the data....

Can anybody tell me how to find this information inside my ERA INTERIM data please.. or at least lowest and higest level presures so I can indentify their vertical possition.


Sincerely,
Alberto Mario Striedinger Pinilla

Hi alberto,

Do you know the climate data operators (CDO)?
It's a pretty neat set of command line operators to analyze and modify netCDF and grib files.
It is freely available.
If you install those, the command "cdo sinfov FILENAME" will give you information about horizontal and vertical grids.

You can also check the ECMWF homepage. They have a data FAQ there with a throrough description of the ERA-Interim data.
