Is there a tool that creates NetCDF files from HDF or is there a way to get AIRS data in NetCDF format?
A. Look at the URL http://hdfeos.net/software.php Under HDF-EOS Tools there is an entry # hdfeos-netcdf converts HDF-EOS4/5 files to netCDF #Detailed description: hdfeos2netcdf converts HDF-EOS4/5 files to netCDF. hdfeos2netcdf takes two file name arguments: the name of the HDF-EOS5 input file and the name of the netCDF output file. If the converter encounters an error it can’t recover from, it prints an error message and exits; otherwise, it creates the output file and exits quietly. The download link points to http://hdfeos.net/software/hdfeos-netcdf/v1_1/ The date of this tool is Oct 4, 2006. We have had no experience with it. The contents of the tar file is a set of C modules with a make file. The README is: hdfeos2netcdf – Converts HDF-EOS4/5 files to netCDF Installing Prerequisites This program uses both the HDF-EOS4 and HDF-EOS5 libraries (which require the HDF4 and HDF5 libraries, respectively) and the netCDF libraries, so they must all be installed before trying to build this
