Congratulations to Ellie Shaw, Salem, MA who correctly answered last week’s questin on GRIB files. ” GRIB is the acronym for General Regularly-distributed Information in Binary Format. The data in a GRIB file contains two-dimensional information that is used by meteorologists worldwide to store and share weather data and forecasts. You need an application or software to read the GRIB files, such as OCENS, PredictWind or Open CPN. The good thing about GRIB files is they are small and can be sent to boats all over the world via email.”
