netCDF File Issues
CDO (Climate Data Operators) AnalysisProblem:Users may encounter problems using MACA netCDF data using CDO (Climate Data Operators) tools from the Max-Planck-Institut fur Meteorologie. These problems stem in that the MACAv2-METDATA/LIVNEH netCDF datasets are in the netcdf4 format and that these files do not have time as the UNLIMITED dimension. In general, I believe that CDO does not support netcdf4, but needs netcdf3 (classic) format.
Solution: The easiest thing to do to fix this problem is to convert the netcdf4 files to netcdf3-classic format. This can be done using either of the following options which require NCO:
