Juggling NetCDF file in CDAT and NetCDF4-python

People working in the field of atmospheric science and climate change often have to deal with data stored in a netCDF file format. NetCDF file has an extension .nc and is used as a container of gridded data of different dimensions, variables and their associated attributes. Usually netCDF classic format is used to store the climate data. Here we will use two different packages of python to access a model output in netcdf file format and access its variables.
