TSTool / Command / ReadNwsrfsEspTraceEnsemble
ReadNwsrfsEspTraceEnsemble command reads all the time series traces in a National Weather Service River Forecast System (NWSRFS) ESP Trace Ensemble file
(see the NWSRFS ESP Trace Ensemble Input Type Appendix).
Currently, only conditional (CS) files may be read.
Each trace is converted to a separate time series, with each having the same header information.
The sequence identifier (trace number) in the time series is set to the historical
year for the start of the trace and the alias can be set dynamically to uniquely identify each trace.
The following dialog is used to edit the command and illustrates the syntax for the command when reading a single time series.
