about make_NCEP input

#1 Post by rpacheco » Mon Nov 26, 2007 7:51 pm

Hi...I'm a new ROMS user....i'm running the IRD roms version (http://www.brest.ird.fr/Roms_tools/) and after testing a few samples with the standart data that comes with the whole package, I'm interested in doing some hydrodinamic simulations for Pacific Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Maracaibo Lake (Venezuela). Until now, I was generating
my own netcdf files with several mesoscale meteorological models, but
now I want to do some simulations with updated data from noaa but I'm
experiencing some trouble with the make_NCEP commad, wich is the one for my purpouses. I know that the autorization from noaa for downloading
it via their opendap server its required, and i got it.

I'm count with a main server (with a firewall) which controls the traffic for
the computing servers and clusters. I think the public IP for this main server should be enough for them to give us green light. Their reply was short waited and they added me to their privileged list but still it's not working.

Roms brings some url's to try this, i had followed each one on foot through a browser and just one of them led me to what it seems the right place...but fails as the other ones...

the links i'm trying are

%url1='http://dappertest.pmel.noaa.gov/dapper/ ... ace_gauss/'
%
%url1='http://www.cdc.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/nph-nc/ ... ace_gauss/';
%
%url1='http://dappertest.pmel.noaa.gov/dapper/ ... ace_gauss/';
url1='http://www.cdc.noaa.gov/Datasets/ncep.r ... ace_gauss/'
(I know that to try one of these i have to remove the "%" symbol)
(the last one it's the only one that at least show me something when i surf to it in a browser)

When i use de make_NCEP command in matlab gives me this response...


start

Arch : i686 - Matlab version : 14
Use of mex60 and loaddap in 32 bits.

Get NCEP data from 2007 to 2007

Process the first dataset:

READDAP: did not work at 1 try: lets try again.
READDAP: did not work at 2 try: lets try again.
READDAP: did not work at 2 try: lets try again.
READDAP: did not work at 3 try: lets try again.
READDAP: did not work at 3 try: lets try again.
READDAP: did not work at 4 try: lets try again.

and so on.....

this happens with each one of the url's given...

i hope you know what i'm doing wrong...
thank you very much in advance...

You should be warned that most of us who answer questions here are using the Rutgers fork of ROMS and have no idea what you are talking about. :shock: Feel free to contact the Brest group and get them to come here or answer your questions on the side. If the latter, feel free to report back here.
