Argo NetCDF converter to WMO-BUFR, developed by UK Met Office

This python2.7 code converts an Argo NetCDF profile file into a WMO-BUFR 3-15-003 file. It handles core temperature and salinity profiles only.

The Binary Universal Form for the Representation of meteorological data (BUFR) is a binary data format maintained by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

The main script is argonetcdftobufr.py. It calls other python scripts (in the attached zip folder) as well as some standard python packages.

You call it from the linux command line like this:

  • python2.7 argonetcdftobufr.py -i "path/to/netcdf_file/input_netCDF_filename.nc" -o "path/to/output_destination/output_binary_filename.dat"
