GRIB1 file for ERA dataset no longer available


New member
Hi everyone,

I used to download ERA input datasets in the GRIB1 filetype. These GRIB1 files, meant for the ERA dataset, were previously pre-processed using the ungrib.exe tool in WPS. However, the website (NCAR RDA Dataset ds633.0) now offers only customized downloads in the NetCDF filetype. Unfortunately, these NetCDF files cannot be effectively processed using ungrib.exe. I remember that the link to download data in the GRIB1 format was accessible a few months ago, but it seems to have disappeared now.

Has anyone else encountered a similar issue while attempting to utilize ERA data for driving the WRF model? I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or solutions that can be provided to address this challenge.
