The Meteorological Data Explorer (METEX), developed at the Centre for Global Environmental Research (CGER), includes programs for calculating air trajectory and for visualizing meteorological fields. It includes tools for converting datasets from European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecast (ECMWF), National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), and Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) in various binary formats to NetCDF or HDF format. Since some NCEP and JMA data are open for public use and are being disseminated in real time, METEX can be a useful tool for researchers of environmental studies.

This site provides services for online trajectory calculations, viewing meteorological data, and program download.
