Re: [idvusers] IDV Jython, Append to Netcdf?

If you want to use these data in another run of the IDV, perhaps you could
use NCO to combine the files into a single one.  This would give you the
flexibility to create a "combined file" from several IDV runs as well.  See:
<http://nco.sourceforge.net/nco.html#Appending-Variables>
