EQUATES Memory Leak Issue

Hi, I encountered a problem trying to use EQUATES for the continental US run. I would like to link the discussion from another topic to help EQUATES users solve the netcdf4 memory leak issue in the EQUATES category. The issue is related to using a large number of netcdf4 files during simulation. One simple solution is to convert EQUATES netcdf4 files to netcdf3-classic files using nccopy. I have written a short C-shell script and attached it below.

#!/bin/csh -f
foreach file (*.nc4) 
	set BN=`basename $file .nc4`
	nccopy -k classic $file $BN.nc
	echo 'Conversion complete for' $file

Thank you for sharing this solution.
