Problem creating ozone ancilary with Xancil

Hi Helpdesk,

I have created an ozone climatology netcdf (STRAT_ozone_TS_2005_2015.nc) file and I am trying to use xancil to convert it into an ancillary file. To see my xancil setup, please see /projects/ukca-ed/kjamie/jakel/ancillaries/AR5_2000/ozone_attempt_1.job.

When I try to create the ancillary, I get the following error message;

Writing Ozone ancillary file
Error: in procedure get ncatt text 1: NetCDF error number -49
NetCDF: variable not found: dim1

is sounds like xancil is searching for dimension, dim1, but cannot find it, but at this point, I don't know what dim1 is.

If I do;
ncdup -h STRAT_ozone_TS_2005_2015.nc

I get the following;

	time = UNLIMITED ; // (12 currently)
	dim1 = 85 ;
	latitude = 145 ;
	longitude = 1 ;
	bnds = 2 ;
	string64 = 64 ;

So actually, dim1 is there, and it appears to be the vertical dimension.

I'm super confused now. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

This is no longer a problem, so you can close the ticket now.

I renamed the dimension, 'dim1', to 'level' and it worked.
