NC file extension - Unidata Network Common Data form

What is nc file? How to open nc files?

The nc file extension is mainly related to Network Common Data Form (NtCDF) format. NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is a set of software libraries and machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data.

These *.nc files are spectral data files stored in the AIA/ANDI FT-IR data format that can be submitted for searching provided they conform to the V1.1.3 of the AIA/ANDI FT-IR Data Interchange specification.

The recommended extension for netCDF files was changed from CDF to NC file extension in 1994 in order to avoid a clash with the NASA cdf file extension, and now it also avoids confusion with "Channel Definition Format" files.
