For about a year, Eli has been saying that the UAH (and the RSS) software for decoding the (A)MSU data is not publically available. To be honest the Rabett had expected that if it was available somebunny (Hi Lucia) would be churning away on it and others (Hi Steve) would be auditing and still others would be rewriting it in Python (Hi Nick) and they would have haruphed at Eli.
Well, it turns out that a recent poke at this by Eli, brought a pointer to a place where this was mentioned three years ago,
Dr. Christy and Dr. Spencer of UAH asking about the public availability of the source code used to process UAH data. Dr. Christy replied:and in turn mentioned a name of someone who might have some information
We are in a program with NOAA to transfer the code to a certified system that will be mounted on a government site and where almost anyone should be able to run it. We actually tried this several years ago, but our code was so complicated that the transfer was eventually given up after six months.
So UAH source code isn't currently available, but they're in the process of working with a NOAA program to make it available. I followed up asking if there was a general ETA for this availability. He replied:So Eli googled John Bates and got a reply
I talked with of NOAA two weeks ago and indicated I wanted to be early (I said the "first guinea pig") in the program. He didn't have a firm date on when his IT/programming team would be ready to start the transition, so I don't know.
you can find details on code and download the code itself for Christy and for RSS MSU from this web page:
