Hi Tess,

I haven’t upgraded to macOS 10.13 High Sierra yet, but I think that the 10.12 binary release should work for you.

From what I recall, NCL binary releases tend to work on macOS releases newer than the version they were built on (but not vice versa), although XQuartz and the appropriate version of GCC must be installed.

Please let us know if it works!

I've looked at the precompiled not OPeNDAP-enabled binaries on http://www.earthsystemgrid.org <http://www.earthsystemgrid.org/>, but the latest version of macOS listed is 10.12 (ncl_ncarg-6.4.0-MacOS_10.12_64bit_nodap_gnu530.tar.gz).
