TAMDAR data will continue in the experimental RUC runs and in GSD's AMDAR web sites for at least 2 more months. Yesterday's message on imminent ending of publicly available TAMDAR data and TAMDAR-enhanced RUC data was superseded today -- AirDAT has decided continue full availability of TAMDAR data at least through 15 Jan 2007.
So, real-time products from the 13km devRUC and 13km backupRUC are continuing to use TAMDAR data and the 20km dev2-RUC (using TAMDAR) products will continue to be available. Many of you are aware that the 20km dev-RUC does NOT assimilate TAMDAR, so differences between the 20km dev and 20km dev2 RUC runs are fully attributable to TAMDAR observations.
Today's email from AirDat explaining the continuing of experimental TAMDAR into January is available from the TAMDAR forum at http://amdar.noaa.gov/TAMDAR/forum/Welcome.cgi/rev/197.
