Updraft helicity and SRH in the Southern Hemisphere

Hello everybody,

Is it possible to update the post-processing codes used to calculate the storm relative helicity (SRH) and updraft helicity (UH) for the Southern Hemisphere?

/sorc/ncep_post.fd/CALHEL.f
/sorc/ncep_post.fd/CALUPDHEL.f

From what I saw in the SRH code, the left movement of the average wind is not taken into account, and in the code to calculate the UH I did not find adaptations to find the negative ascending helicity, so I should look for the minimum values of UH, in Southern Hemisphere cases.

Hello!

I'll check to see with the team to see if this is possible and let you know as soon as I hear anything.  Thanks for the detail!
