The aim of this course is to introduce students to BUFR decoding and encoding with ecCodes: A package developed by ECMWF which provides an application programming interface and a set of tools for decoding and encoding BUFR messages.

Note: The version of the ecCodes software used for this training course is now released (v2.6.0). Please see here.

The tarball containing all the data and practicals (including the solutions) used in the course can be found here.
