Incorrect information in TMY file

Hello all,

I'm running a project in Vernal, Utah. The actual altitude of Vernal is
~5,200 feet. But according to the TMY3 weather file (UT_Vernal.bin),
the altitude is 1,608. Is there a way of modifying the .bin file to
reflect the accurate altitude?

Thanks,

Jim Crockett, P.E.

I've gotten a few responses saying that the elevations are in meters. The altitude correction factor that eQUEST uses is 1.06, which corresponds to an altitude of about 1,600 feet. Any thoughts on how to a) notify eQUEST that the elevation is in meters, or b) modify the elevation in the bin file?
