Description (last modified by anphi)

Dear FLEXPART users,

we prepared a bugfix version for flex_extract v7.0.3 used for retrieving ECMWF input data for FLEXPART.
This was necessary since there were errors in ERA5 and CERA retrievals. Also, there were some other problems.


  • This version can now retrieve ERA5 and CERA data.
  • It can retrieve public datasets by using the command line parameter public
  • It can write an extra file mars_requests.csv which contains all mars request parameters for each request. Use the command line pararmeter request
  • It can retrieve analysis and forecast ensembles efficiently e.g. by setting number=0/to/9. In this case output files get an additional suffix for the ensemble member number.


On ecgate we use the following module packages:

  • jasper/1.900.1(default)
  • eccodes/2.9.2(nov18:default)
  • ecfs/2.2.5(nov18:test:new:prodn:default)
  • python/2.7.12-01(may18:new:default)
  • ecaccess/4.0.2(default)
  • fftw/3.3.4(default)
  • emos/455-r64

Please be aware that all of the above packages are the current default versions except for emos! This is important since emos/458 does not work!


The tarball that includes a Software Installation Protocol and a Software User Tutorial can be downloaded here flex_extract v7.0.4

With best regards,

Anne Philipp and Leopold Haimberger
