More than 12 input files for a concentration run

Post by Smaug »

Hello,

I currently have meteorological data files where each file corresponds to a single day. I need to run the model for a month with 30 files with a continuous release. As HYSPLIT limits the number of input meteorological files to 12 is there some way of circumventing this limit to run the model for a month?

Thanks

You can concatenate the files using the command cat in linux or type in windows. It works as follows:
Open a command line (Windows) or a terminal (linux)
write the following command for windows:
type file1 > file_concat
type file2 >> file_concat

similarly for linux:
cat file1 > file_concat
cat file2 >> file_concat
