     18 
     19=== Modelling Tools === 
     20 
     21 * **Central Ancillary Program** \\ 
     22 The CAP is developed by the Met. Office, for creating ancillary data for use with the UM. This service is only available to registered PUMA users.  
     23 
     24 * **LAMPOS** \\ 
     25 The LAMPOS tool was developed at the Met Office and is used in positioning and defining a limited area domain. The user draws the limited area on a map, and the program calculates the position of the corners and the rotated pole. 
     26  
     27 * **Unified Model User Interface (UMUI)** \\ 
     28 
     29 * **xancil** \\ 
     30 Xancil is a X-windows based application for creating Unified Model ancillary files from netCDF input files.  
     31 
     32 * **xconv** \\ 
     33 Xconv is a program designed to convert model output into a format suitable for use in various plotting packages. Xconv is designed to be simple to use with a point and click, X-windows based interface. Xconv can read UKMO Unified Model data, UKMO PP, GRIB, NetCDF and Drs format data. Data can be output in NetCDF, Drs and Utf format.  
     34 
     35=== Development Tools === 
     36 
     37 * **Modset Repository** \\ 
     38 Search, view and download standard UM modsets.  
     39 
     40 * **Source Code Browsers** \\ 
     41 Interactive views of the UM source code  
     42 
     43 * **!StashCodes to CF Name Mapping** \\ 
     44 Table for translating from UM Stashcode to CF standard name  
     45 
     46 * **STASHmaster File Viewer** \\ 
     47 Easy browsing of the UM STASHmaster files.   
     48 
     49=== Analysis and Plotting Tools === 
     50 
     51 * **MDIAG** \\ 
     52 MDIAG generates useful diagnostics from a basic set of UM fields using old dynamics (i.e. UM pre vn 5.0). The code works with any UM domains.  
     53 
     54 * **NDdiag** \\ 
     55 NDdiag generates useful diagnostics from a basic set of UM fields using new dynamics (i.e UM vn 5.3 onwards). The code works with any UM domains.  
     56 
     57 * **SFVP Program** \\ 
     58 Calculate stream function and numerous other fields from basic U and V wind components. 
     59 This utility is only available local to Reading. Please contact Jeff Cole (j.cole [at] reading.ac.uk) for further information.  
     60 
     61 * **xconv** \\ 
     62 Xconv is a program designed to convert model output into a format suitable for use in various plotting packages. Xconv is designed to be simple to use with a point and click, X-windows based interface. Xconv can read UKMO Unified Model data, UKMO PP, GRIB, NetCDF and Drs format data. Data can be output in NetCDF, Drs and Utf format.  
     63 
     64=== UM File Manipulation Tools === 
     65 
     66 * **PP Format File Manipulation Tools** \\ 
     67 Tools available for manipulating PP format files; including merging, comparing, rotating and extracting fields.  
     68 
     69 * **UM Format File Manipulation Tools** \\ 
     70 Tools available for manipulating UM format files; including viewing, converting, printing headers and extracting boundary conditions.  
     71 
     72=== Miscellaneous Tools === 
     73 
     74 * **copy_stash** \\ 
     75 copy_stash is a Tcl script to allow the copying of stash sections of one downloaded UMUI job to another. copy_stash is available on PUMA under /home/umui/umtools/bin/copy_stash. The script contains explicit help for copying STASH settings.  
     76 
     77 * **UM Filename Translator** \\ 
     78 Web Interface to umtodate. Converts UM output filenames into real dates.  
     79 
     80 * **UMMCIP** \\ 
     81 UMMCIP is the interface to the Meteorology Chemistry Interface Processor (MCIP) for UM data. This interface was developed by Aeolus, NCAS and the UK Met Office.
