The bitsPerValue determines the relative size of the data download required for each parameter. The bitsPerValue ranges from 12 to 20 bits for our current parameters.
Note the data download size is not a direct multiplier of the bitsPerValue as there are standard overheads within the generated GRIB files which are common for all parameters. However, the bitsPerValue is a good guide to the relative cost of each parameter.
