Binary Encoders Module

Encode data into these formats:

netCDF format: This encoder can encode Radiometer (RDX) profiles, both single and multi-sounding sounding files. Plans include capability to encode AWIPS type soundings and other formats requested by RAOB users. Note, however, that due to the numerous netCDF format data structure variations, not all netCDF encoded files can not be decoded by the RAOB program. These encoded files are only produced for use by other netCDF software platforms.

BUFR format: This BUFR encoder encodes all traditional profile information, including vertical wind components. Multiple soundings can also encoded into a single multi-sounding file. RDX data can also be BUFR encoded, however, only one scan mode at a time can be encoded, while Liquid-Water and Vapor-Density data are not encoded.

See the Standard Encoders Module for the following formats: RAW, RAOB CSV, WMO, and BUFKIT.
