ok,I got the file to serve up using this url: http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8081/thredds/dodsC/testdods/K1VHR_05JUL2012_0700_L2B_OLR.h5 It is readable by toolsUI and by the netcdf-c library (although it drops the variables whose name has a '/' in it, as expected). You might try the following experiment. In your home directory, create a file called ".dodsrc". In this file, insert this line: ucar.nc2.cdm.usegroups=false and see what happens to you attempts to read the file. You can use the motherlode url above if you want. What I think is happening is that by default those '/' characters are causing groups to be created and the variables are inside those groups. If you are not aware of the groups, then those variables will appear to be missing. By turning off the group flag (the .dodsrc line above), the variables will be created in the top level. They will be visible, but probably with odd names. =Dennis Heimbigner Unidata Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: IQQ-460810 Department: Support netCDF Java Priority: Urgent Status: Closed
