Format of Meteorological Data

For atmospheric codes, when entering met data, can the user have the flexibility of entering either JFD or hourly observations?

It depends on the computer program. ARCON96 requires hourly meteorological data ("met data") in a specific format. PAVAN and XOQDOQ both currently require input to be in joint frequency distribution ("JFD") format. The User Guide for each program describes the required format of the met data.
