The outputs from ncdump -k are one of these four strings: classic 64-bit offset netCDF-4 netCDF-4 classic model The "-x" option works to specify NcML output for all but the third of those format variants, "netCDF-4". > I will pass on the information about the java netCDF library to the NOAA > people who run our CLASS archive.
