Hello, The netCDF file can be printed to ASCII format using the command-line tools bundled with netCDF, such as `ncdump`. This is fairly rudimentary, however; you might also explore the 3rd-party NCO toolkit for advanced command-line utilities (http://nco.sourceforge.net/). We also maintain a page of 3rd party software for working with netCDF; these packages are not maintained by Unidata, but there are both free and commercial software utilities that may provide the functionality you need: * http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/software.html If this is a task which will be performed frequently, you might also be interested in the "Rosetta" package. Rosetta is a server-side package used for converting various data formats to ASCII, including netCDF. From the Rosetta project page (http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/rosetta/docs/): "The Unidata Data Transformation Tool, Rosetta, is a web-based service that provides an easy, wizard-based interface for data collectors to transform their datalogger generated ASCII output into Climate and Forecast (CF) compliant netCDF files, complete with metadata describing what data are contained in the file, the instruments used to collect the data, and other critical information that otherwise may be lost in one of many dreaded README files. However, with the understanding that the observational community appreciates the ease of use of ASCII files, methods for transforming the netCDF back into a user defined CSV or spreadsheet formats are also built-in. We anticipate that Rosetta and the associated services will be of value to a broader community users who have similar needs for transforming the data they have collected or stored in non-standard formats." Using Rosetta would require installing and running your own Rosetta server, but perhaps this would be worthwhile depending on your use case.
