I have a global netcdf dataset which is split into 32 files, each one covering a 45 x 45 degree quadrangle of the earth. I'd like to concatenate these into a single netcdf file using the latitude and longitude dimensions (both of which are regular 1D coordinates).
I see that it's possible to use ncpdq to concatenate along a single spatial dimension, assuming it's set to be the record dimension. My question then is, is it possible to concatenate data across both latitude and longitude dimensions simultaneusly?
I think the answer is, no, not just yet. But I thought I'd pose the question.
Alas, you are correct. The ncpdq method works, but only along one dimension at a time. People with cubed-sphere grids often do what you may end up doing, and
stitch in a loop to assemble the global dataset.
Thought that was the case - thanks for confirming. As you suggest, I can cobble together a little loop to stitch the files together.
