Acknowledgment: This project took advantage of netCDF software developed by UCAR/Unidata (www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/).

Short Description of Functionality

The application ncrcatmat can be used in an analogous way to ncrcat of the nco - tools and concatenate netcdf-files (s. CF-NETCDF.NC), but can be used under linux und therefore be implemented in scripts. In particular when ncdelta is used, concatenating boewrt-files that are converted to netcdf often needs to be done as a preperating step. ncrcatmat can thus be seen as a linux-alternative for the otherwise in the BAW only under windows available nco-tool ncrcat. The main application of ncrcatmat is to concatenate the boewrt-files converted by dataconvert for usage in ncdelta and taylordiagram.

ncrcatmat.xe LZ4a.nc LZ3.nc ALL.nc

This command concatenates the netcdf-files along the unlimited dimension to a new netcdf-file ALL.nc.

ncrcatmat.xe *.nc ALL.nc

This command concatenates all netcdf-files in the current folder along the unlimited dimension to a new netcdf-file ALL.nc.

Input-Files

All files that share the same netcdf-architecture with the same unlimited dimension (*.nc). Only outputfiles by DATACONVERT were tested.

Output-Files

netcdf-file (*.nc)

Methodology

The matlab command ncwriteschema() is used to define the netcdf-structure on the basis of the first given input file.
