Before deciding to reinvent the wheel, check out the example code on GitHub (NCL, IDL, Perl, python, Matlab), listed below.
Make sure you have the correct file attributes and metadata when creating emission files (link to template).
- Redistributing and combining species for aerosol schemes [NCL]
- Combining CO2 emissions with emission ratios [NCL]
Creating tagged emissions
- Automated download and processing of near-real-time fire emissions [Perl]
- Creating model error covariance?
