    55There is `GRIB1` and `GRIB2` format. Since V8.0, FLEXPART can read GRIB2 (as well as GRIB1). Current operational NCEP GFS model data are disseminated in the GRIB2 format.

    7 A recommended GRIB library implementation is ECMWF's [https://software.ecmwf.int/wiki/display/GRIB/Home GRIB_API]. A Version >= 1.6.1 is needed for reading GRIB2 data. It can read the GRIB1 format as well. For backward compatiblity, the EMOS GRIB library can still be used (although it can only work with GRIB1 data).

     9The [https://software.ecmwf.int/wiki/display/EMOS/Emoslib EMOS library] can also be used, and since January 2014 it also offers GRIB2 capability, but by calling GRIB_API. EMOS has a number of interpolation functions for ECMWF data; they are not needed for running FLEXPART, so there is nothing to gain by using EMOSlib. If you have an older EMOSlib already installed, it will probably still work for decoding GRIB1 fields.
