Detailed Description

A class for handling variable metadata, reading, writing and converting from input units and to output units.

A NetCDF variable can have any number of attributes, but some of them get special treatment:


Typical attributes stored here:

Use the name of "PISM_GLOBAL" to read and write global attributes. (See also File.)
