[Support #MJA-592376]: FW: Unable to locat netcdf specification (UNCLASSIFIED)

Hi Jennifer,

Yes, you might want to start with the recently approved NASA ESDS
standard for netCDF-4 (ESDS-RFC-022), available by following the link
to the PDF file from this table of NASA Earth science standards:


The document title NASA uses is "NetCDF-4/HDF5 File Format, with
guidance on how to write netCDF conformant files using the HDF API":
