Overview

This program is now OBSOLETE since DART inflation files are now in NetCDF format. Use one of the standard NCO utilities like "ncap2" on a copy of another restart file to set the initial inflation mean, and another for the initial inflation standard deviation. Inflation mean and sd values look exactly like restart values, arranged by variable type like T, U, V, etc.

Depending on your version of the NCO utilities, you can use ncap2 to set the T,U and V inf values using one of two syntaxes:

  ncap2 -s 'T=1.0;U=1.0;V=1.0' wrfinput_d01 input_priorinf_mean.nc
  ncap2 -s 'T=0.6;U=0.6;V=0.6' wrfinput_d01 input_priorinf_sd.nc
  -or-
  ncap2 -s 'T(:,:,:)=1.0;U(:,:,:)=1.0;V(:,:,:)=1.0' wrfinput_d01 input_priorinf_mean.nc
  ncap2 -s 'T(:,:,:)=0.6;U(:,:,:)=0.6;V(:,:,:)=0.6' wrfinput_d01 input_priorinf_sd.nc

Some versions of the NCO utilities change the full 3D arrays into a single scalar. If that's your result (check your output with ncdump -h) use the alternate syntax or a more recent version of the NCO tools.
