[netCDF #QXF-267477]: netcdf - grib - gempak format

In general, you can't necessarily convert netCDF to GRIB, because they use 
different data models.  For example, if a netCDF file contains multiple 
multi-dimensional variables of various ranks (dimensionalities), each with 
multiple descriptive attributes specifying units, standard names, coordinate 
systems, and cell measures, there is no way  to represent all that information 
in a GRIB file.

For converting GRIB to netCDF or part of a netCDF file to GRIB format, there 
several software packages that might be helpful


I don't know much about gempak, except that it can't read all GRIB files or all
netCDF files, but you might try asking about specific conversions supported by
gempak on the Unidata support list, address@hidden ...
