  To make each submessage into its own message (field), try

    wgrib2 old.grb2 -grib new.grb2

   Another way to view the grib2 files is to convert them into netcdf
using wgrib2.  Kristian Nilssen
wrote the netcdf module and Sergey Varlamov has improved it.

This process works well with all fields, except UGRD and VGRD. In the GRIB2 index files, these fields have a decimal value for the Message Number.
