Using xancil to generate time varying vegetation ancillaries

Hi, I'm having problems using Xancil (version 0.40) to generate a time varying vegetation parameter ancillary file for use with HadCM3.

The input netcdf file has 100 different time fields, however, Xancil creates an ancillary with only one time field, for a date 0000/01/01:00.00, which is unrelated to any date in the input file.

I've tried with and without manually specifying the file dates within Xancil, both with and without the option of overwriting the specified dates in the NetCDF file. The result is always the same though, one time field with a date 0000/01/01:00.00.

Is it possible to produce time varying veg auxiliaries using Xancil or does it assume only one time level? And if it is possible any suggestions as to possible mistakes I might be making would be gratefully received.

Hi Andrew

Xancil only creates an ancillary file with one time for vegetation parameter files, so you weren't doing anything wrong. If you upgrade to version 0.50 (download from here), you can use the generalised ancillary file option to create a time varying vegetation parameter ancillary file. Let me know if you require further help with doing this.
