GFAn Experiment Control Interface

  • Handles multiple experiments, with and without optimization, in batch runs
  • Works with ASCII format tables with records in rows and variables in columns (variable names in row 1) or accepts a transposed format (variable names in column 1) for single record tables; alternative double precision binary format (Table Toolbox Binary)
  • Supports extraction from one or more NetCDF data sets onto a user-defined grid as an alternative to ASCII input for gridded items; option to save extracted data as ASCII/binary tables for later use
  • Assigns experiment-specific file names to each input and output table
  • Avoids expensive re-loading of resident data where input file names are unchanged between experiments
  • Comprehensive log output includes view of all input data or selected tables only
  • Generates templates for input tables on request
