Hi Michael,

Would you mind pointing me to the tools that can re-grid the MPAS model outputs? Ideally it would be nice to re-grid restart file from one grid configuration to another, e.g., from uniform resolution to variable resolution grids, or to regional domains.

There's a branch named "atmosphere/mpas_to_mpas" in my fork of the MPAS-Tools repository. From that branch, if you look in the "limited_area/mpas_to_mpas" directory you'll find some prototype C++ code to remap fields from one MPAS mesh to another. The code isn't user-friendly and comes with no documentation, but you may be able to use that as a base for what you'd like to do.
