[THREDDS #XRG-961762]: Questions about the OPeNDAP DataSet Access Form


I'm assuming you're looking at NEXRAD level 2 data via opendap. In that case, 
the _HI variables have higher resolution data than the rest. Unfortunately, the 
high resolution data and the regular resolution are not-redundant; these 
changes in resolution reflect how the data are collected by the National 
Weather Service, so there's nothing we can do to change that, unfortunately.
