[THREDDS #QGA-850320]: Question Regarding Data Access

Hi Ari,

As Lansing mentions, tds.ucar.edu is not a server that Unidata manages. I 
believe it is managed by the ESG group here at NCAR. I'm not sure who to 
contact for support regarding that server but you might try this ESG page


There is a "Create Account" link in the quick links section on the right side 
of that page. Also, there is a "Contact Us" link at both the top and the bottom 
of that page.

Hope that helps,
