OK, I thought of one other possibility that might be simploer than trying to use CDO or adapt nccopy. If you can build and install the NCO package: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/software.html#NCO you may be able to use the "ncks" utility directly to create a one-day file with each invocation of ncks, so you could write a script of ncks commands that would do what you want. Specifically, you might be able to use something like ncks -d time,1.0,2.0 in.nc out01.nc ncks -d time,2.0,3.0 in.nc out02.nc ... where "time" is a coordinate variable that uses units of days since some base time. If you used different time unints, you would need to use different limits for the values of the coordinate variable, given as floating-point values in the string provided with the "-d" option. --Russ P.S. Also I see a correction is needed to the CDO explanation I provided, which should have said: Usage would be: cdo -f nc splitday ifile day that I think would result in output files day01.nc day02.nc ... day31.nc for an input file named "ifile". > -----Original Message----- > From: Unidata netCDF Support [mailto:address@hidden > Sent: Tuesday, December 21, 2010 7:33 AM > To: address@hidden > Cc: address@hidden > Subject: [netCDF #EYS-770628]: NetCDF Processing > > Hi Ted, > > > How do I split packed NetCDF files into individual daily .nc files? > > > > I've got Python and R. > > There is an operator "splitday" that's part of the freely available > Climate Data Operators (CDO) software: > > https://code.zmaw.de/embedded/cdo/1.4.6/cdo.html > > that may do what you want, if your input file is acceptable to CDO. > > Usage would be: > > cdo -f nc splitday ifile day > > that I think would result in output files > > ifile01.nc ifile02.nc ... ifile31.nc > > for an input file named "ifile". > > If this doesn't do exactly what you want, the source may be helpful > in seeing how to write a program to do what you want in Python or R. > > Another possibility would be to modify the C nccopy utility, which just > copies all data from an input netCDF file to an output file, possibly > of a different netCDF format variant.
