Convert2netcdf is a tool to convert MOHID results files written in HDF5 format into netcdf. This tool makes use of ModuleNETCDF (under development and to be included in MOHID Base 1). Optionally, you can extract only specified datasets.

Input data file

The input data file must be placed in the working folder and must be named Convert2netcdf.dat.

HDF_FILE             : [char]    !Path to the HDF5 file to be converted
HDF_SIZE_GROUP       : [char]    !HDF group containing the HDF dataset from where 
                                 !the dimensions will be read
HDF_SIZE_DATASET     : [char]    !Name of the HDF dataset from where the dimensions
                                 !will be read
HDF_TIME_VAR         : [char]    !Name of the HDF group containing the 
                                 !time values
HDF_READ_LATLON      : int       !Type of projection (0 - metric, 1 - lat/lon)
HDF_READ_SIGMA       : int       !Type of vertical coordinate (0 - cartesian, 1 - sigma)

IMPOSE_MASK          : bool      !In case we want to specify the mask variable.
HDF_MASK             : [char]    !If we chose to specify a mask variable, then we define here
                                 !the variable name
HDF_MASK_IS_3D       : bool      !Is the mask variable 3D? yes or no.
RESULTS_ARE_2D       : bool      !Sometimes the mask variable is 3D, but the results

CONVERT_EVERYTHING   : int       !0 - Don't convert everything, 1 - Convert everything
