Re: [ferret_users] Using data that spans multiple files without saving to file

And, this is described in the Ferret documentation under

"descriptor files", and "multi-file datasets"

I am looking to have Ferret merge variables in 4 datasets into one continuous time series without having to save,append new files and variables to my directory. This is because my files are very large.

For example,
I have 4 datasets:

dataset1 is heat.nc var_name   (time is from years 1-5)
dateset2 is heat.nc var_name   (time is from years 6-10)

The files have the same variable and the time dimension only varies with where it begins and ends.  I could concatenate these files on my server, or with Ferret, but both of these methods involve creating a new file; which is not what I want to do.

Is it possible to create a new variable that "strings" together these two datasets into one continuous variable from years 1-10?

Thanks in advance
