[THREDDS #MLL-831526]: NaN returning from motherlode thredds ncss for RAP

Hi Daryl,

the THREDDS deployed in motherlode 9080 is still an alpha release 
(4.3.10-alpha) and for this version the behaviour of the parameters for 
the NetCDF Subset Service was modified but the form what you get from in 
the web interface doesn't reflect this new behaviour yet.
The problem is the form adds a param time to the requests and you only 
get values for the specified instant in the param time regardless the 
time range. If you remove the param time from the url and define a time 
range with two of the params time_start, time_end and time_duration it 
should work.
An example:
-URL from the THREDDS web interface, with time param (so the time range 
is ignored and one single time is returned):

-Same URL as above removing param time (and some others that are not 
needed as well):

You can check the new parameter specification in:

And, of course we'll fix the form for the stable 4.3 release.
Thank you very much for reporting this and any feedback about the 
parameter specification would be highly appreciated.
