[IDV #DDB-941683]: Missing 1200 UTC files when browsing NOMADS NDGD RTMA TDS server with IDV



Greetings Kevin,

I'm pretty sure this isn't an IDV issue. If I use the netCDF Subset Service on 
the NOMADS THREDDS server and make the following request,

http://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov/thredds/ncss/grid/aggs/ndgdAggLTMA?var=Temperature&latitude=40&longitude=-105&temporal=range&time_start=2010-01-02T10%3A00%3A00Z&time_end=2010-01-02T14%3A00%3A00Z&accept=csv&point=true

which means "please give me the Temperature data from the grid point closest to 
40N,-105E, from 10Z to 14Z on 2010-01-02, and let me have the data in csv 
format. K thx bai." I get the following in return:

date,lat[unit="degrees_north"],lon[unit="degrees_east"],vertCoord[unit="m"],Temperature[unit="K"]
2010-01-02T10:00:00Z,0.0,0.0,0.0,NaN
2010-01-02T11:00:00Z,0.0,0.0,0.0,NaN
2010-01-02T13:00:00Z,0.0,0.0,0.0,NaN
2010-01-02T14:00:00Z,0.0,0.0,0.0,NaN

Note that the 12Z data does not show up in this list either, which means 
something is being dropped (by accident or on purpose) on the NOMADS side. In 
fact, we can go 'all in' and ask for all of the data available at that point 
using

http://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov/thredds/ncss/grid/aggs/ndgdAggLTMA?var=Temperature&latitude=40&longitude=-105&temporal=all&accept=csv&point=true

which is the same as above, except we use "temporal=all" (gimme all the 
times!), and sure enough, the string "T12" never appears in the output.

I've CC'd John to this message as he may have an idea what is happening here.

Cheers!

Sean
