Salish Sea NEMO Model ERDDAP Datasets

This repo contains the datasets.xml file that provides the dataset descriptions for the Salish Sea NEMO Model ERDDAP server at

Also in the repo are files, chiefly a Jupyter notebook, used to maintain the datasets.xml file, and notes in this file about maintenance of the datasets file and the ERDDAP server.


Building ERDDAP Datasets

This notebook documents the process of creating XML fragments for nowcast system run results files for inclusion in /results/erddap-datasets/datasets.xml which is symlinked to /opt/tomcat/content/erddap/datasets.xml on the skookum ERDDAP server instance.

The contents are a combination of:

  • instructions for using the tool found in the /opt/tomcat/webapps/erddap/WEB-INF/ directory
  • code and metadata to transform the output of into XML fragments that are ready for inclusion in /results/erddap-datasets/datasets.xml
  • instructions for forcing the server to update the datasets collection via the /results/erddap/flags/ directory
