This is pretty far outside of how fields are designed to work in yt. The access of data in yt isn't currently designed to work with more than one pf. I don't actually see a way to do this without combining the data so that it can be seen as a single pf. If parallel wasn't an issue and this were only a unigrid run, you might be able to read in all the data at once from both pfs and do some of this by hand. If this is AMR, then I think this may not be possible at all, considering the hierarchy is unlikely to be exactly the same between two different datasets.
I was wondering if it is possible to specify two different sources of
input to create a derived field. Currently with a single source, I have a
derived field defined as:
def _HII_HFraction(field, data):
And I can access the total quantity in parallel
dd = pf.h.all_data()
But I'm dealing with
pf1 has the HI_Density field data and pf2 has the HII_Density field data.
Is there a way to create a derived field and use TotalQuantity to operate
on the data in parallel?
PS. I guess my alternative is to glue the two HDF5 files into one, but
want to avoid it if possible.
