Fwd: [ferret_users] how to open lots of files?

Hi Ferreters,

The problem is SODA data set has not enough information about time in its header. Therefore neither nc2mc or make_des tools are able to generate a suitable descriptor file.

The solution I thought is to calculate start-times and time-steps from SODA filenames, once it contains year and month information, then use it to compose the descriptor file.

Isabel, attached is the bash script I wrote to generate a descriptor file for SODA and the resultant descriptor file.

Hope it solve your problem.

Dear all,

I've been working with oceanic data files from SODA v.2.0.2, those files are .cdf. There are 528 files and each one represents a single month. Is there any way to open them simultaneously using a single file, so that they'd follow a chronological order?? Something like a template file (GrADS)?

thanks for your attention,
