Tutorial for using the netCDF Data Curation Primer

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

This document is a supplemental primer to the main IMLS-Data-CurationFormat Profile-netCDF primer (http://hdl.handle.net/2027.42/145724). Within this primer, the NCAR Global Climate Four-Dimensional Data Assimilation (CFDDA) Hourly 40 km Reanalysis dataset from the Research Data Archive (RDA) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is used to demonstrate how to assess a netCDF-based dataset according to the main primer’s instructions. In particular, Panoply, a curation review tool that is recommended by the main primer, is used to examine the dataset in order to help answer the questions outlined in the “Key Questions for Curation Review” section of the main primer.
This work was created as part of the Data Curation Network “Specialized Data Curation” Workshop #1 co-located with the Digital Library Federation (DLF) Forum 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 17-18, 2018.
