[IDV #JHS-477170]: 20130607: WRF like model aggregation in the IDV

Hi Shuyi,

I'm writing to update you on the status of a problem we ran into when
trying to use the UMiami coupled model output (cplout and umwmout)
files in the IDV.  As you may recall, the problem was that the IDV
was unable to aggregate multiple output files by time.  One of the
IDV developers got a chance to look at the files today, and he
found that the reason that the cplout and umwmout files could not
be aggregated by time is that they do not have a time dimension
defined at all.  This is in contrast to the wrfout files could be
aggregated by time by the IDV since they do have a time dimension.

I have attached a file, README, that is an overview of how to use a
workaround that Sean (the IDV developer that looked into the problem)
developed (using the file umwmout.ncml which is also attached), and
some recommendations for how the cplout and umwmout file structure
could be modified to make them immediately usable in the IDV.

Please pass this information along to Milan so he can take a look.  If
he has any questions, please ask him to send an email to:


and make sure to include the tag 'IDV #JHS-477170' in the Subject: of his email.

I'm sorry that we couldn't connect when you were in Boulder!  I'm sure that
we will see each other sometime in the future...

P.S.  We may use some of the UMiami coupled model output in the IDV WRF
training session this coming Friday morning.
