Abstract:

GLFSVIEW is a menu-driven Visual Basic application running under MicroSoft Windows. This application allows quick downloading, browsing, printing and display of two-dimensional data maps predicted by the Great Lakes Forecasting System (GLFS) in a user-friendly, graphical environment. The maps include lake bathymetry, water surface elevation, water surface temperature, vertically integrated velocity, wind speed and direction, three-stations of water elevation time series, wave height and direction, and AVHRR satellite-derived water surface temperature and visible band reflectance distribution. GLFSVIEW users download updated or historical files by dialing to the GLFS Database at OSU via a modem or telneting via the Internet, thus permitting display of the two dimensional lake maps on their own PCs.
