    11  * The Software for retrieving ECMWF data in the specific format needed by FLEXPART was originally created by Gerhard Wotawa. The later versions were written by Leo Haimberger on behalf of CTBTO.From v7.0.3 on, together with Anne Philipp.
    12  *  Since v7, this software has been given the name '''flex_extract''' (before, various names were used to refer to it).
    13  * Originally, this software was usable for member-state users only. '''From v7.0.3 on, retrieving public datasets as non-member-state user is supported.'''
    14  * The '''Version''' column in the table below has links for downloading the corresponding tarball.
