Sorry for the cross-post.
For those not on the netCDF-Java or THREDDS email lists, just wanted to
let you know that there is a vigorous discussion about a potentially big
change to how the netCDF-Java library and the THREDDS Data Server (TDS)
handle GRIB data files.
The conversation has moved to a netCDF-Java Google Group discussion thread:
If you write software or scripts that use OPeNDAP to access
atmospheric/climate (and related earth sciences) data, it may be of
interest to you.
Basically, some variable names need to change; the most general solution
would involve changing all variable names. So it would impact any
scripts that use variable names to access affected data.
If you are interested, please follow the discussion at the above link.
