grib-api: GRIB decoder library

Versions Installed

Fionn: 1.11.0


The ECMWF GRIB API is an application program interface accessible from C and FORTRAN programs developed for encoding and decoding WMO FM-92 GRIB edition 1 and edition 2 messages. A useful set of command line tools is also provided to give quick access to grib messages.


GRIB-API is available under the GNU General Public License, v2.0.



Additional Notes

GRIB-API is built for the Intel libraries at ICHEC.

To use grib-api on Fionn, load the relevant environment module:

module load libs grib_api/intel/1.11.0

This sets the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and INCLUDE environmental variables to point at the necessary include files and libraries.
