 Numbering of NetCDF IDsIn C, Fortran 77, and Fortran 90, netCDF objects are identified by an integer: the ID
 Creating New Files and Metadata, an OverviewTo construct a netCDF file you need to:
 Reading NetCDF Files of Known StructureTo read a netCDF file of known structure, you need to:
 Reading NetCDF Files of Unknown StructurePerhaps you would like to write your software to handle more general cases, so that you don't have to adjust your source every time the grid size changes, or a variable is added to the file
 Reading and Writing Subsets of DataUsually users are interested in reading or writing subsets of variables in a netCDF data file
 NetCDF DocumentationLanguage specific programming guides are available for netCDF for the C, C++, Fortran 77, Fortran 90, and Java APIs:
 The NetCDF Data ModelThe netCDF data model is the way that we think about data
 Unlimited DimensionsSometimes you don't know the size of all dimensions when you create a file, or you would like to arbitrarily extend the file along one of the dimensions
 GroupsNetCDF-4 files can store attributes, variables, and dimensions in hierarchical groups
 User Defined Types
 StringsUse the NC_STRING type to store arrays of strings
 Fill ValuesSometimes there are missing values in the data, and some value is needed to represent them
