[netCDF #YLT-173676]: Opening of large files

Hello Andrea,

If you can provide the code you're working with, I might be able to provide 
more effective help; there are a lot of ways to process the file, with varying 
levels of efficiency. In general, effectively accessing the file depends on the 
size and shape of the underlying chunks (if the data is chunked).  
has a good overview of why this matters.  

Have a great day,
