Can I  just gently amend this statement.  Writing an arbitrary netCDF file is easy,  writing a useful netCDF file is hard. The difference is the first just pretty much dumps the data,  while the second has files with all the proper metadata and naming conventions and units that follow one of the conventions,  say the CF conventions and names  (http://cfconventions.org).  I strongly urge anyone creating netCDF files to take the time to learn how to create a file that will be really useful for others down the line.
