I work using grads version 2.0.1 on the Linux platform.
I would like to convert the GEFS member (for example
"2017_12_11_p01_f009.grib2") from "wgrib2" to "ctl" format.
To do this I followed the procedure:
./g2ctl.pl 2017_12_11_p01_f009.grib2 > 2017_12_11_p01_f009.grib2.ctl
gribmap -i 2017_12_11_p01_f009.grib2.ctl
(by generating the "2017_12_11_p01_f009.grib2.idx" file )
When I open this file with grads I have the error:
Scanning description file: 2017_12_11_p01_f009.grib2.ctl
Open Error: Data file type invalid
--> The invalid description file record is:
--> dtype grib2
The data file was not opened.
The wgrib2 version is: v0.2.0.6c 2/2017
The g2ctl.pl version is:v0.1.2
I hope anyone could help me.
Thank you very much
