WSR_REFORMAT Reads Global and ECMWF Ensemble GRIB files to create a file for both ensembles for 0 to 180 hours lead time every 12 hours.
WSR_SIG_PAC Generates an 8-panel signal variance chart.
WSR_SIGVAR_ALLNORMS Computes geographical and temporal distribution estimates of the "signal" variance associated with the target data collected over a selected flight track.
WSR_SUMM_ALLNORMS Carries the general sensitivity calculations for a selected search area and creates a text data file.
WSR_TCOEFFUVT Creates matrices for each observation time, based on the ensemble perturbations.
WSR_TGR_SPECIAL Creates GIF images for display on the internet.
WSR_XVVEST_ALLNORMS Creates matrices for each verification case based on the ensemble perturbations.
WXPXANAL Creates a data point field and merges a label file to produce the weather depiction FAX and AFOS charts.
WXPXFRNT Breaks the coarse, unevenly spaced nodes from fronts drawn manually via NMAP into smaller, more uniform line segments for the weather depiction FAX and AFOS charts.
WXPXPLOT Generates the weather depicition chart for AFOS.
XTRNPRNT Dumps the contents of an XTRN transmission file.
