[netCDF #BKR-624336]: Help to manipulate .nc files on Python


Can you send the exact error message you get when you try to open the file? 
Otherwise, there's no way I can help you figure out what's going on.

In general, you may want to look at this for tips on reading netCDF from Python:


The install directions to go with that material is here:



> Dear Ms or Mr,
> I'm working on a water scarcity index and I need to manipulate netCDF
> files (especially from ISIMIP and EarthStat ). I've seen that it's
> possible to access to these .nc files on Python using some packages.
> I've installed NCO and netCDF4 on Python in order to open and manipulate
> .nc files but I don't find the way to operate as I'm new with Python.
> May you help me with some guidelines ? I've read on the Python help that
> I probably need to use Dataset from netCDF4 but I failed to open the file.
> I don't know if I use the good packages or if I need to use netCDF
> 4.6.1 but I even don't know how to install this package from the source
> code ( https://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-c/releases )... I read about
> using ncdump to open a .nc file but I think I can't use this with NCO
> or netCDF4.
