A script is available to create a list of ERA datafiles for Nudging as a perpetual year.
This will repeatedly link actual files for the fixed year as files for years required by the run. E.g. if the simulation is to be run using
Y2000 conditions but for
20years with model start date at
1990, the script will cyclically link
year 2000 ERA datafiles as separate files for each year between
1990-2009, into a local folder.
