Greetings Angela, It's possible that you will need to modify the netCDF file with some basic information. This can be done using NCML, an xml file that netCDF-Java can read that will allow you to 'fix' the netCDF file without actually re-writing it. Based on the changes made using NcML, you can modify the program to write the proper attributes needed to allow the IDV (and other software that follows the CF standards) to read your file without the need for NcML. If you have a sample file, you may upload it to our support area and I can try to write a basic NcML file that will point you in the right direction and allow you to get things going in the IDV. http://motherlode.ucar.edu/repository/alias/idvupload Cheers!
