Flexpart from apt-get install

Reported by: jaxelsson Owned by: pesei
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: FP coding/compilation Version: FLEXPART 9.0.2
Keywords: Cc:



Just wondering where to find all the f90 files from the install through apt-get install (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS) for modification. E.g. where are they stored (parmod.f90, err.f90)?

I also wanted to ask if someone has worked with FLEXPART code through Metview GUI, and know how to set environmental variables for FLXEPART retrieval when working in Metview?

Best regards,

Hi, as you can see at, the source code is not included in the .deb package. For downloading the source code for the Ubuntu package, you have to apt-get source flexpart. If you really want to work with the Ubuntu package, you should learn about .deb packaging; a good starting point might be

Howver, that being said, compiling FLEXPART is easy, so you should probably rather just get the source from and compile it. (If you don't have any compiler installed yet, you can just apt-get build-dep flexpart to install all packages you need to build FLEXPART).

On the first part of the question, all is said very well by Andreas H already.

I haven't used metview for a long time but I don't think that it has a FLEXPART interface - maybe a FLEXTRA interface, and then I presume it would only be able to do trajectory calculations directly at ECWMF. But that's just guessing right now.

I did a download from the website, and the compilation worked fine!
The executable FLEXPART_GFORTRAN did not end with .exe or alike, is that an issue? I'm working in a Linux OS.
