[THREDDS #NMD-832849]: GFS ds083.3



Greetings!

While we at Unidata develop the THREDDS Data Server, this
particular instance (Research Data Archive) is managed by
the Data Engineering and Curation Section of the Computational
and Information Systems Laboratory at NCAR. I'm uncertain when
they started requiring a log-in to access the datasets on the
RDA, but they certainly do now. For example, I can see the
OPeNDAP access webpage for the dataset in your example by 
visiting:

https://rda.ucar.edu/thredds/dodsC/files/g/ds083.3/2016/201602/gdas1.fnl0p25.2016020218.f00.grib2.html

but only after logging in first. Getting an account is free,
from what I understand here:

https://rda.ucar.edu/index.html?hash=data_user&action=register

Once registered, I'm sure there is a way to provide login
credentials in matlab so that you can access the data, but
I am not a matlab user myself, so I cannot offer any assistance
there. If you have issues getting things up and running once
you register, your best bet on getting help would be to contact
the RDA at address@hidden

Cheers!

Sean
