pbdNCDF4: Programming with Big Data – Interface to Parallel Unidata NetCDF4 Format Data Files

This package adds collective parallel read and write capability to the R package ncdf4 version 1.8. Typical use is as a parallel NetCDF4 file reader in SPMD style programming. Each R process reads and writes its own data in a synchronized collective mode, resulting in faster parallel performance. Performance improvement is conditional on a parallel file system.
