Generating LBCs from FRAMES files for MOGREPS-R

I'm not sure whether this is the right place to be asking this question, but have tried most other avenues already without finding a resolution.

I'm trying to run MOGREPS-R on HECToR for 27/08/2011 (initially, other dates will follow) and have a start dump and perturbation files, however, the boundary conditions are in individual FRAMES files (1 snapshot per file, 1 file per 3 hours, 22 files in total and are on the Global model grid). Is there a way of creating a LBC file from the FRAMES files, using e.g. MAKEBC and do you know of anyone who has done this that could provide an example.

Hi Andrew,

Makebc is the preferred method of creating LBC files. This is described in the UM document F54 which can be found at

I hope that helps.
