[netCDFJava #RGN-330338]: Different grib2 decodings between NCL and netCDF Java library

Hi Brian:

Netcdf-Java typically sets missing values to NaNs, sounds like NCL does not.

If you can send me a sample file (and as much detail as needed to reproduce) I 
can double check if anything more nefarious is going on.


> Dear Sir,
> I am decoding NOAA ESRL HRRR model output in grib2 format and have 
> encountered a conflict.
> I am decoding the categorical precipitation fields:
> In particular, I am decoding CFRZR and CICEP and am getting an issue that 
> when I use NCL to view the values of these parameters, I get values of "O".
> When I use netCDF-Java library 4.3.x or 4.5.2 (or NASA's Panoply tool which 
> employs netCDF-Java libraries) to view the values of these parameters, I get 
> values of "NaN".
> Can you explain what is happening here? Are the values in the grib2 file 
> actually missing and being decoded in two different ways? How can I determine?
> Thanks,
> Brian
