I am writing a rasterbrick with multiple layers to a netcdf file using the raster package in R:
writeRaster(gridfile, "Data", "CDF", overwrite=TRUE, varname="Data",varunit="mm.d-1",longname="Monthly data", xname="lon",yname="lat", zname="time", zunit="month",bylayer=FALSE,NAflag=-9999)
Is there a way to have the data with time coordinates in the written ncdf file? E.g. in the NetCDF Viewer Panoply I can plot the data in [lon][lat] but not in [time][lat].
Also how can specify the timesteps as specific months in a year instead of the timesteps starting from 1 and increasing?
