According to the PyNIO homepage:

"PyNIO is a Python package that allows read and/or write access to a variety of data formats using an interface modeled on netCDF. PyNIO is composed of a C library called libnio along with a Python module based on and with an interface similar to the Scientific.IO.NetCDF module written by Konrad Hinsen. The C library contains the same data I/O code used in NCL, a scripting language developed for analysis and visualization of geo-scientific data. Currently supported formats include:
  • netCDF (read/write)
  • GRIB 1 and GRIB 2 (read-only)
  • HDF 4 (read/write for Scientific DataSets only)
  • HDFEOS 2 (read-only for Grid and Swath data only)
  • CCM history files (read-only)


Versions of PyNIO are available as modules. Additional information about PyNIO is available on the PyNIO homepage.
