[gdal-dev] Calling GDAL directly from within Python

To start with a side note, your GDAL version of 3.0.8 doesn't make much
sense. The utilities from the bindings are available since 2.1 if I'm
correct, and the latest release is 2.2. Doesn't matter though. 

The text about "GRIB" you are seeing is only the name of the coordinate
system, 'gdal.Translate' simply copies this projection to the TIFF file. Its
a bit confusing indeed. The name probably comes from GDAL's GRIB driver, or
some library it uses. 

Your call to gdal.Translate appears to work fine, although its always good
to check if the projection, extent etc are correct. And preferably also find
some documentation from the data provider to confirm.
