[IDV #VTE-700117]: Why is this .nc file not recognized?



Brian,

Two problems:

1/ Add the conventions attribute (Conventions "CF-1.0")
2/ Units for time should be

days since 0000-01-01 12:00 UTC

NOT

days since 0000-01-00 12:00 UTC

Thanks to John Caron for helping get to the bottom of this.

Best,
