Rebecca,
    Sorry for the delay reply.
    I checked the uploaded sample file, the problem of this dataset is that the 
sigma coordinate is now well defined. Here is the link of the CF sigma 
convention:

https://earthdata.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/field/document/cf-conventions_v1.4.pdf

and check the section 4.3 for more detail information.
