hf5 it is supposed to do this, but I haven't any success trying to open an .hdf (V5) file (i.e: pathfinderv5 sst data) I always get some data format problem message. So I use to search for a netcdf format for the data I want and input into R with the netCDF library (old but useful)

Por favor, si me mandas correos con copia a varias personas,
pon mi dirección de correo en copia oculta (CCO), para evitar
que acabe en montones de sitios, eliminando mi privacidad,
favoreciendo la propagación de virus y la proliferación del SPAM. Gracias.
If you send me e-mail which has also been sent to several other people,
kindly mark my address as blind-carbon-copy (or BCC), to avoid its
distribution, which affects my privacy, increases the likelihood of
spreading viruses, and leads to more SPAM. Thanks.
