International sea level

MATLAB routine for use with sea level data

A simple MATLAB script to read the netCDF file.

%
% A simple Matlab script to read the BODC netcdf file.
%
% Author: Nathan Bindoff
% Date: 28 March 2000
% The script uses Jim Mansbridge's netcdf routines for matlab.
%
% Documentation and description of these routines can be found at 
% http://www.marine.csiro.au/sw/matlab-netcdf.html.
%
% IMPORTANT NOTE: If you run into problems with this script, 
%                 it may be that you need to replace getcdf 
%                 with getnc. (getcdf was part of the earlier Matlab
%                 4.x CSIRO release, and the script should work if
%                 you use the old CSIRO software, which is still 
%                 available on the www). getnc is used with Matlab 5.
