FLEXPART meteorological input from ECMWF

In order to extract data from the ECMWF MARS archive, one needs an account at ECMWF.

Reanalsis and MACC/CAMS data are publicly available. The procedure for registration is explained on the ECMWF web site. Consider the applicable licence.

For other data (e.g., operational IFS data) a member-state or special-project account is be required. Contact your national meteorological service if you need this and your country is among ECMWF member states.

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.
