Paper Abstract

The acquisition and real-time analysis of comprehensive, high resolution, meteorological data sets require considerable processing power. Each data source (such as radar, satellite, observing networks) requires unique processing to acquire the data, control quality, and convert the data into a user acceptable form. To rapidly present these data for display at a workstation, much of the data are routinely converted into display-ready form and stored on the workstation disk. The PROFS PC-based workstation allows the forecast and research meteorologist to rapidly manipulate the displays and also access the raw data for custom processing. Although the workstation has been optimized for real-time response, the software is being extended to also allow some review and perusal of recorded data.
