What is ncregrid?
ncregrid is a tool (written in FORTRAN-90)
for data transfer of gridded 2- and 3-dimensional
(spatial) geophysical/geochemical scalar fields between grids of different
resolutions. The algorithm handles data on rectangular latitude/longitude
grids (not necessarily evenly spaced) and vertical pressure hybrid grids of
arbitrary resolution. The input/output data format is netCDF.
ncregrid can be used as a "stand-alone"' program, and/or linked as an
interface to a model, in order to re-grid automatically the input from an
arbitrary grid space onto the required grid resolution.
