This documentation describes the scientific contents of the rows written in operational files by ARPEGE/ALADIN models : definition, unit, calculation, etc ... cloudiness precipitations diagnostics index of variables ...
It was written in June 2005 by Jean-Marcel Piriou. It is in French.
Through "ARPEGE/ALADIN files" one points out the main kind of files used to interface programms of the ARPEGE/ALADIN suite, that is to say : guess and primary results from analysis ; initial conditions (to start only) and primary outputs from the forecasting model or its initialization ; input (...)

Paladin is for Portable Auxillary Library And Development tools for aladIN.
This project contains : a portable version of FA/LFI library a portable version of EGGX (new and old) library a portable version of my tools modules a portable version of my (...)
The LFI library is used to manipulate direct-access model files at Météo-France. It is currently used for the native files of Arpège, Aladin and Méso-NH models, and for Arpège/Aladin ancillary files (climatologies, postprocessing, Aladin coupling). Arpège/Aladin use an overlayer of LFI called the FA (...)
Recent tests showed that without any modifications in the code the only way to run 3DVAR screening in ALADIN 15 is to provide an input ODB containing only reports inside the C+I zone. At present the creation of this input ODB is done in two steps. In the first step the whole ODB is scanned (...)
The present AFS software (LFA in french, Logiciel de Fichiers Autodocumentés) is designed to read or write real, integer or character arrays, on portable files (IEEE binairies), will a portable code. Articles in the files are accessed through their name.
The underlying idea of this software is (...)

As a complement to CHAGAL, ASCS is a program to make vertical cross sections of
fields from ALADIN or even ARPEGE.
Those who have been to the COMPARE/PYREX workshop must have seen many (...)
FRODO program was developped by Jean-Daniel Gril. It reads files in FA format and extracts header datas from them, with ASCII output format. These datas contain geographicals parameters, dates, levels ..., and the list of fields inside the file.
