[netCDF #KYR-687090]: How to code polar stereographic projection to NetCDF?

Hi Alejandro,

You should use the CF Conventions, which recommend a few attributes to encode 
the grid description, using 

  grid_mapping_name = polar_stereographic

For details, see the Appendix F: Grid Mappings of the latest CF Conventions
