Using SMOKE to create annual emissions maps

I would like to use SMOKE to input annual emissions and allocate them to grid cells using the spatial surrogates. My goal is to create a gridded netcdf file of emissions without using temporal. Is this possible with grdmat and merge? I looked at some of my intermediate netcdf files but they were not distributed on the model grid (they have multiple rows and one column).

This is possible with smkinven, grdmat, and smkmerge. The MRG_TEMPORAL_YN and MRG_SPCMAT_YN environment variables will need to be set to N when running smkmerge for this to work. If you are using the platform scripts you will likely need to change the values of those environment variables in the run scripts and set the spcmat and temporal steps to N in the run_settings file.
