Nitin,
           Here  is a good example for you:
netcdf file:/machine/yuanho/Desktop/nssl/netcdf90.ncml {
 dimensions:
   Azimuth = 90;
   Gate = 1800;
   sweep = 2;
 variables:
   float BeamWidth(Azimuth=90);
     :Units = "Degrees";
   float AzimuthalSpacing(Azimuth=90);
     :Units = "Degrees";
   float GateWidth(Azimuth=90);
     :Units = "Meters";
   float NyquistVelocity(Azimuth=90);
     :Units = "MetersPerSecond";
   double sweep(sweep=2);
   float Reflectivity(sweep=2, Azimuth=90, Gate=1800);
     :Units = "dBZ";
     :NumValidRuns = -1; // int
   float Azimuth(sweep=2, Azimuth=90);
     :Units = "Degrees";

 :Elevation = 1.29638671875; // double
 :ElevationUnits = "Degrees";
 :RangeToFirstGate = 10092.962890625; // double
 :RangeToFirstGateUnits = "Meters";
 :MissingData = -99900.0f; // float
 :RangeFolded = -99901.0f; // float
 :TypeName = "Reflectivity";
 :DataType = "RadialSet";
 :Latitude = 35.23583221435547; // double
 :Longitude = -97.46194458007812; // double
 :Height = 13.0; // double
 :Time = 1145926820; // int
 :FractionalTime = 0.0020475560000000003; // double
 :attributes = " ColorMap Unit smoothingKernel";
 :ColorMap-unit = "dimensionless";
 :ColorMap-value = "Reflectivity";
 :Unit-unit = "dimensionless";
 :Unit-value = "dBZ";
 :smoothingKernel-unit = "dimensionless";
 :smoothingKernel-value = "none";
 :format = "nssl/netcdf";
 :volume = "true";
 :conventions = "_Coordinates";
 :ProductStationName = "TTTT";
 :time_coverage_start = "2006-04-25T21:06:21Z";
}
