I have downloaded "High Resolution Initial Conditions" climate forecast data for one day. The file had an
.tar.gz extension so I extracted it in my local directory and I get the files listed here:
I think the files without any extension are GRIB data, because the first word in them is "GRIB". I want to import the data from the big files (GRIB and NetCDF formats containing climate data like temperature & pressure in grid) into my database, but they are binary.
Can you recommend some easy way for importing the data from these files? I can't get any information about handling their datasets on their website.
Converting these files to
.csv format would be nice, however I can't find any working program to convert the GRIB files.
