Subject obs4MIPs program
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 20:49:36 GMT

I am going to check in CISTO NASA obs4MIPs Python program into the 
apache climate incubator this week.  The software is used here at NASA 
NCCS to convert from hdf, netcdf, grads (ctl) files and matlab files to 
netcdf using CMOR2 and following the CMIP5 convention.   Since the code 
was written following obs4MIPs project requirements , some CMOR2 
attributes are deleted and new ones are created in the output file.

Feel free to try it up.  If you have problem installing/running the 
software send a ticket to the Apache JIRA.  You might have to do some 
work on get all dependencies working first.   The sofware utilizes a lot 
of third party package such as xlrd, cmor2, netCDF4, ....

I have written a INSTALLATION document which explains how to solve the 
dependencies and set up a "resource" file to run the program. I have 
also created 2 examples, one with TRMM data that I downloaded from the 
GES DISC (as netcdf file) and one from the ECMWF ERA-Interim Y2013 data 
file using a excel spreadsheet to match CMIP5 variables to ECMWF variables.

In the future I will add a "grads ctl" file example, which is very 
helpful to aggregate data easily.

Have fun with it!
