xancil error

Reported by: charlie Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Tools Keywords:
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 6.6.3



Sorry to bother you, but I'm having some problems creating a new ancillary file using xancil on Archer. I thought I had the correct netcdf file as input, but perhaps there is a problem with it? I get the error below. Can you advise?

Thanks a lot,

Hi again,

Further to my message yesterday, please ignore it as I have now identified and resolved the problem. The issue, I think, was because my snow depth netcdf file (used by xancil to create the snow edge component in the ancillary file) was a different length than my soil moisture netcdf file.

Many thanks,
