Re: Time conversion

 Thanks for your suggestions....

  However, I found what I was looking for. Using the search engine on the
U of W Astronomy IDL Page, I found that Paul Ricchiazzi already developed
an IDL routine - ARMbasetime.pro - that converted the number of seconds
since Jan 1, 1970 00:00:00 UTC into yy, mm, dd, and hh. Very useful......

 Also, I discovered that William Weibel from UCLA developed some handy
NetCDF routines that proved to be useful with extracting the values from
the NetCDF files.
