     I would say most other fields are either 0 hr or 3 hr, there may be other 
time interval parameters in 
the list which I don't know much.

I was told It is in their plan to make this available in the netCDF-Java 4.6 
library and hopefully we
can deliver this to the IDV users asap. I am truly sorry for delayed.
