Bufrpy is a pure-Python BUFR message decoder. BUFR messages are typically used to transmit meteorological observations. Bufrpy was developed to work with NWCSAF RDT and HRW data, but there should not be any reason why it could not be used with any BUFR messages, with the following limitations:

  • Messages with multiple data subsets are not supported
  • Compressed messages are not supported
  • Operator descriptors are not supported
  • Sequence descriptors are not supported

Adding support for any of the above should be feasible, but we have not encountered such data in our use of the library.
