In addition to typical
surface and upper air data, usually from government-operated weather stations,
AERMET 7 can import a wide range of meteorological data collected at on-site
stations. These range from data from meteorological towers that measure wind
and temperature at multiple heights to SODAR and wind profiler data. AERMET 7
includes support for the Fortran FREE format, meaning data exported from
spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel can easily be read in.
