selyear(
  var,
  year = c(2000),
  infile,
  outfile,
  nc34 = 4,
  overwrite = FALSE,
  verbose = FALSE
)

Arguments

var

Name of NetCDF variable (character).

year

Year in form of a comma separated vector of integer values (e.g. c(2000,2015)) (integer).

infile

Filename of input NetCDF file. This may include the directory (character).

outfile

Filename of output NetCDF file. This may include the directory (character).

nc34

NetCDF version of output file. If nc34 = 3 the output file will be in NetCDFv3 format (numeric). Default output is NetCDFv4.

overwrite

logical; should existing output file be overwritten?

verbose

logical; if TRUE, progress messages are shown

Value

A NetCDF file including a time series of the selected years is written.

## Create an example NetCDF file with a similar structure
## as used by CM SAF. The file is created with the ncdf4 package.
## Alternatively example data can be freely downloaded here:
## <https://wui.cmsaf.eu/>

library(ncdf4)

## create some (non-realistic) example data

 lon <- seq(5,15,0.5)
 lat <- seq(45,55,0.5)
 time <- seq(as.Date('2000-01-01'), as.Date('2010-12-31'), 'month')
 origin <- as.Date('1983-01-01 00:00:00')
 time <- as.numeric(difftime(time,origin,units='hour'))
 data <- array(250:350,dim=c(21,21,132))

## create example NetCDF

  x <- ncdim_def(name='lon',units='degrees_east',vals=lon)
  y <- ncdim_def(name='lat',units='degrees_north',vals=lat)
  t <- ncdim_def(name='time',units='hours since 1983-01-01 00:00:00',
  vals=time,unlim=TRUE)
  var1 <- ncvar_def('SIS','W m-2',list(x,y,t),-1,prec='short')
  vars <- list(var1)
  ncnew <- nc_create(file.path(tempdir(),'CMSAF_example_file.nc'),vars)
  ncvar_put(ncnew,var1,data)
  ncatt_put(ncnew,'lon','standard_name','longitude',prec='text')
  ncatt_put(ncnew,'lat','standard_name','latitude',prec='text')
  nc_close(ncnew)

## Select all values of the year 2003 and 2006 of the example CM SAF
## NetCDF file and write the output to a new file.
  selyear(var = "SIS", year = c(2003,2006), infile = file.path(tempdir(),
  'CMSAF_example_file.nc'), outfile = file.path(tempdir(),
  'CMSAF_example_file_selyear.nc'))

unlink(c(file.path(tempdir(),"CMSAF_example_file.nc"), 
 file.path(tempdir(),"CMSAF_example_file_selyear.nc")))
