Hi Jennifer

Thanks for pointing out this, it saves my time.

I am planning to use pygrads instead, but pygrads does not support
ensemble, I can't import result back to grads.

After some reseach , it seems that I can write binary data with vars
and dims, but all samples use fortran witch I am not familiar with, ;(
, is there some specs to do this, thus I can python.

Great thanks.
