Accessing data using your copy of GrADS*

DODS allows one to give a application a url and have it directly download data. To read this data into GrADS use
sdfopen http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.NOAA/.NCEP-NCAR/.CDAS-1/.mc6190/.Intrinsic/.MSL/.pressure/T+differences/X+integral/%5BT+%5Drmsaover/dods
If you have questions, comments, or problems please use the help@iri link. This page will evolve as we learn more about how GrADS handles data downloads, and your help pointing out problems is much appreciated.


*On GrADS startup, the config line should read Config: ... DODS-enabled ..., otherwise DODS (a.k.a. OpenDAP) is not installed and giving GrADS a URL instead of a local file name will result in a file-not-found error. In that case, you can use sdfopen after you download the netcdf file.
