Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) is a set of software libraries and machine independent data formats for array-orientated scientific data.

A centrally installed version of NetCDF is provided on Bede by the netcdf module(s). It provides the C, C++ and Fortran bindings for this file format library. When an MPI module is loaded, parallel file support is enabled through the PnetCDF and HDF5 libraries.

module load netcdf
module load netcdf/4.7.4


NetCDF’s parallel functionality can use HDF5, and so is subject to its known issues on Bede (see Known issues).
