We manage a supercomputing facility for our Member and Co-operating States, providing vital resources for computer modelling of the global atmosphere and ocean and for weather forecasting research. Here you can find out about the specification and set-up of our facilities, how to get access to them, and where to go for support and guidance.
You need to be fully registered to use our computing facilities. Find out how to get access.
The following software packages are available from ECMWF.
Member and Co-operating States' national meteorological services should first check with Software Support for availability of additional software.
|BUFRDC||Encodes and decodes WMO FM-94 BUFR code messages. Includes tools for conversion between BUFR and CREX.||Free download|
|ecCodes||Encodes and decodes WMO FM-92 GRIB messages (editions 1 and 2) and WMO FM-94 BUFR messages (editions 3 and 4).
Note: ecCodes is an evolution of GRIB API
Enables users to run a large number of programs (with dependencies on each other and on time) in a controlled environment.
|EMOSLIB||Includes interpolation software and BUFR, CREX encoding and decoding routines.||Free download|
Encodes and decodes WMO FM-92 GRIB edition 1 and edition 2 messages.
|Magics||Supports the plotting of contours, wind fields, observations, satellite images, symbols, text, axes and graphs (including boxplots).||Free download|
Accesses, manipulates and visualises meteorological data.
|Aeolus||ECMWF and KNMI develop the Aeolus Level-2B wind retrieval software, the main output of which are HLOS wind observations, which are suitable for use in NWP and meteorological research.||Request download|
