Parcels v2.4.0 implements a completely new way of outputting trajectory data (#1199). It writes directly to a
.zarr directory, which can seamlessly be loaded with the
xarray.open_zarr() method. For more info, see the Reading the output file tutorial.
Output is now smaller in size and faster to write. There is no need for temporary dumps and hence also not to convert these at the end of a simulation. This makes working with Parcels output during a simulation much easier.What's Changed
