A better bet is probably to add the NetCDF Subset Service (ncss) to the configuration of these datasets and make an ncss request using 'wget'. That way you get back a netCDF file which is a bit easier to deal with as a local file. You just need to add the following service element to your existing compound service: <service name="ncss" serviceType="NetcdfSubset" base="/thredds/ncss/grid/" /> the "servicType" and "base" values need to be as above, the "name" can be whatever you like. Hope that helps. Ethan Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: ZQW-177600 Department: Support THREDDS Priority: Normal Status: Closed
