Level of support

Tier 3 NSC will not be able to help you much with this program, either because we lack the in-house experience, or because it is a test installation. In general, these types of installations are untested, and will not be updated unless you send a request to NSC.

Please see the page describing our software support categories for more information.

Ferret is an interactive computer visualization and analysis environment designed to meet the needs of oceanographers and meteorologists analyzing large and complex gridded data sets. It runs on most Unix systems, and on Windows XP/NT/9x using X windows for display. It can transparently access extensive remote Internet data sources using OPeNDAP (formerly known as DODS).

How to run

Load the Ferret module corresponding to the version you want to use, e.g

module load ferret/6.82-1

This will add the Ferret commands to your search path, and setup a number of environment varables used by Ferret.
