Hi Cecelia, It turns out your dataset is not CF-compliant, which explains why the CDM isn't properly interpreting it. It's pretty arcane stuff: your grid-mapping variable (char rotated_pole) describes the projection using attributes named "grid_south_pole_latitude" and "grid_south_pole_longitude"; however, CF requires these attributes to be named "grid_north_pole_latitude" and "grid_north_pole_longitude" . So, you'll need to convert your coordinates to use the new reference point. I have no idea how difficult that will be, but NcML  may be helpful.
