Here is the CERES procedure all plotted data comes from the archived netCDF CERES products the data is read from the netCDF files and plotted using Java, FLOT and Python. The plots are kind of crude, but made to be quickly generated and allow the user to verify that is what he was looking for.
The nice thing about this tool it also writes out a netCDF file customized from the selections of the user, for only the parameters they want and not the whole official product. Of course all the metadata is the same.
