In case you missed it — here's a recap of news from the Unidata Program Center for the month of December, 2013.
Version 4.3.9 of the netCDF Operators (NCO) has been released. NCO is an Open Source package that consists of a dozen standalone, command-line programs that take netCDF files as input, then operate (e.g., derive new data, average, print, hyperslab, manipulate metadata) and output the results to screen or files in text, binary, or netCDF formats.
Unidata is hosting a Short Course on Integrating WRF and Other Model Output with Remote and In-situ Observational Datasets using Unidata's Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) on 2nd February 2013, preceding the 94th AMS Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Unidata Program Center has an opening for a community services manager.

The Unidata Program receives the majority of its funding from the National Science Foundation. Every five years, the program submits a new proposal to the NSF, outlining past accomplishments and describing plans for future activities. We recently received word from the NSF that Unidata's most recent five-year proposal had been accepted and funded.
