We have plans to handle data on "curvilienar grid" such as this transparently, using attributes in the dataset. This is not yet implemented. For now you need to do the 3-argument FILL command, with one exception. Some grids are defined this way but are in fact rectilinear. If the latitudes are the same at all values of i in the grid, and the longitudes are the same at all values of j in the grid, then it'd be a matter of defining 1-D coordinate axes; we can help you do that.
The axis that is being marked as a K axis doesn't have attributes that tell Ferret to mark it as a time axis. Is there a coordinate variable for the dimension of length 120 in the file? The Unix command ncdump would help us understand what is in the file:
> ncdump -h filename.ncYou could initialize the file in Ferret with the /ORDER= qualifier:
yes? use/order=xyt filename.ncand then if the data should have a formatted time axis, you could use the DEFINE AXIS command, setting up a T axis of length 120, with the correct units and time origin, then put the data onto that axis with a command like:
yes? let new_sst = sst[gt=time_axis@asn]-Ansley
