Bufkit Data Distribution System
Welcome to the Bufkit Data Distribution System!
This system provides real-time data for the National Weather Service's
and can display soundings for the NAM, GFS, RAP, NAM4KM, HRRR, SREF and HIRESW models for locations
regionally and around the world. The
concept for this site developed out of a class project focused
on the "Applications of Computers to Meteorology" in the Department
of Meteorology at Penn State. The work to create this site both on the
surface and behind the scenes was a combined effort of Dr. George Young,
professor of meteorology, Joe Koval, former master's degree student in
meteorology, and the members of the Meteo 473 class of Spring 2000.
The package is currently maintained and enhanced on a time-available basis by
at Penn State.
