FDDA BUFR to little_r format conversion problem


New member

I need help. I am trying to convert bufr files to little_r format from the nomads database, e.g.
I've tried using various conversion tools available and recommended on the wrfda website, but they don't work or do it incorrectly. Can anyone help me solve this problem? Are there any tools that work properly for these files.

I will be grateful for any hint, at the moment I can't run data assimilation.

Edit: I was able to convert the bufr files to little_r format using the PREPBUFR2LITTLER software so you may want to give that a shot. I hope this helps!

old post: I am also running into this issue. There are a few resources out there to convert the BUFR to little_r format, but I can't seem to get any of them to work. If you ever found the solution, please let me know! I am aware there is a software called PREPBUFR2LITTLER, but I am also struggling with that.
