noresm:noresm2nc4mpi

noresm2nc4mpi - hexagon compression tool for NorESM output

Run /work/shared/noresm/tools/noresm2nc4mpi -h to print detailed instructions:

Usage: /work/shared/noresm/tools/noresm2nc4mpi <absolute path to case in archive directory> 

Example: export ACCOUNT=nn9039k 
         export WALLTIME=24:00:00 
         noresm2nc4mpi /work/ingo/archive/my-noresm-case 
  
Purpose: Converts NorESM output to compressed netcdf 4 format and gzips restart files   

Description: noresm2nc4mpi is fully mpi parallized and submits a pbs job 
             to the queue to do the compression on the backend.  
            
             IMPORTANT: Only run one instance of noresm2nc4mpi on a single case
             at a time. Yet, it is safe to run multiple instances of noresm2nc4mpi 
             on multiple NorESM cases at a time. In case that a noresm2nc4mpi job 
             terminates before completion then simply run noresm2nc4mpi again 
             (the tool with continue where it stopped).
