A change in the NCEP GFS half-degree exposed a flaw in the way variable names
were being generated from grib files. This required an update on
thredds.ucar.edu and yields now slightly different variable names in a few
These changes should be permanent, so you should be safe updating your scripts.
Apologies for the inconvenience, but unfortunately NCEP's upstream changes
caught us off-guard as well.
Gory details below, if interested.
So, besides if anything is glitching out on idd, the immediate problem is that
changed from using wmo level type 10:
<Title_en>Code table 4.5 - Fixed surface types and units</Title_en>
to NCEP level 200:
<description>Entire atmosphere (considered as a single layer)</description>
and we had both names shortened to "entire_atmosphere", thus a conflict when
both variants are present. Presumably those are different, else why would NCEP
So ive changed NCEP level 200 short_name to "entire_atmosphere_single_layer".
if anyone has a better name, let me know. did same for
<description>Entire ocean (considered as a single layer)</description>
