Dear warner
in roms model when we have different files for one variable we use | sign at the end of it. But what about in COAWST. When i use
wind_year1.nc |
wind_year2.nc\
it gives me error that cant find input file? Would you please tell me how i can define this separate files in COAWST model
cheers

My understanding is that COAWST is based on ROMS 3.4. The function you mentioned was introduced after ROMS 3.5. So I don't think you can use the function yet. I tried that before with an old version of COAWST and it did not work (revision 711).

John is working on updating COAWST with a new version of ROMS. Once it is officially rolled out, you should be able to include multiple files. You also can concatenate all netcdf files using NCO fairly easily as an alternative way so that you don't need to use the function. A downside is that the file is getting bigger...

Hope this helps.
