grdpaste - Join two grids along their common edge
Note: No space is allowed between the option flag and the associated arguments.
grdpaste will combine file_a.nc and file_b.nc into outfile.nc by pasting them together along their common edge. Files file_a.nc and file_b.nc must have the same dx, dy and have one edge in common. If in doubt, check with grdinfo and use grdcut and/or grdsample if necessary to prepare the edge joint. Note: For geographical grids, you may have to use -f to handle periodic longitudes unless the input grids are properly recognized as such via their meta-data.

Grid File Formats¶
By default GMT writes out grid as single precision floats in a COARDS-complaint netCDF file format. However, GMT is able to produce grid files in many other commonly used grid file formats and also facilitates so called “packing” of grids, writing out floating point data as 1- or 2-byte integers.

Suppose file_a.nc is 150E - 180E and 0 - 30N, and file_b.nc is 150E - 180E, -30S - 0, then you can make outfile.nc which will be 150 - 180 and -30S - 30N by:
gmt grdpaste file_a.nc file_b.nc -Goutfile.nc -V -fg
