Summary: Libraries to use the Unidata network Common Data Form (netCDF), Fortran interface
NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is an interface for array-oriented
data access and a freely-distributed collection of software libraries
for C, Fortran, C++, and perl that provides an implementation of the
interface.  The netCDF library also defines a machine-independent format
for representing scientific data. Together, the interface, library, and
format support the creation, access, and sharing of scientific data. The
netCDF software was developed at the Unidata Program Center in Boulder,

NetCDF data is:

   o Self-Describing. A netCDF file includes information about the data
     it contains.

   o Network-transparent. A netCDF file is represented in a form that
     can be accessed by computers with different ways of storing
     integers, characters, and floating-point numbers.

   o Direct-access. A small subset of a large dataset may be accessed
     efficiently, without first reading through all the preceding data.

   o Appendable. Data can be appended to a netCDF dataset along one
     dimension without copying the dataset or redefining its structure.
     The structure of a netCDF dataset can be changed, though this
     sometimes causes the dataset to be copied.

   o Sharable. One writer and multiple readers may simultaneously access
     the same netCDF file.

This package contains Fortran interface library for NetCDF.
