Cfa error in reading pp files in jasmin-sci

Hi,

I am trying to convert some pp files to netCDF in JASMIN-sci using CFA. I am using Python 3.8 environment. CFA is not being able to read any of my UM pp files. I am getting the following error:

cfa ERROR reading /gws/nopw/j04/incompass/shared/model/MD17/field.pp/20160704T0000Z_INCOMPASS_km17_ga6_pa000.pp: Can’t determine format of file /gws/nopw/j04/incompass/shared/model/MD17/field.pp/20160704T0000Z_INCOMPASS_km17_ga6_pa000.pp

Any clues?

Thanks,
Arathy

Can you move that file somewhere we can read it - to your home space maybe if the file’s not too big?

Hi Arathy,

You’re using module load jaspy and it looks like there is an issue with jaspy / cf-python meaning that cfa reading pp files gives an error. As a work around you can type:
export PATH=/home/users/ajh/miniconda3_cfview/bin:$PATH

I will have a further look at this tomorrow and update the ticket when I know more.

Cheers
Andy

Thanks Grenville and Andy.

I put a copy of the file into my home amenon, but the conversion is working now after exporting this new path that Andy gave.

Cheers,
Arathy
