Pardon me if this has already been mentioned (I seem to be entering the 
discussion late), but have you tried getting the Matlab NetCDF tools to work 
with octave?  You can get them at

I remember installing them for matlab, but I never tried using them with 

We have one professor here in my department who is a big believer in both 
Octave and NetCDF.  I forwarded this issue to him to see if he might have any 

Good luck.
