Iceberg reaches end-of-life on 30th November 2020. If you are running jobs on Iceberg then you need to take urgent action to ensure that your jobs/scripts will run on ShARC or Bessemer. If you have never used ShARC or Bessemer then now is the time to test your scripts. Not all software on Iceberg is available on ShARC/Bessemer.

NetCDF (PGI build)

NetCDF is a set of software libraries and self-describing, machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data. NetCDF was developed and is maintained at Unidata. Unidata provides data and software tools for use in geoscience education and research. Unidata is part of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Community Programs (UCP). Unidata is funded primarily by the National Science Foundation.


This version of NetCDF was compiled using version 15.7 of the PGI Compiler, OpenMPI 1.8.8 and HDF5 1.8.15-patch1. To make it available, run the following module command after starting a qsh or qrsh session

module load libs/pgi/netcdf/

This module also loads the relevant modules for OpenMPI, PGI Compiler and HDF5. To see which modules have been loaded, use the command module list
