Re: dimension problem with rgrid2rcm

You do not have to name the dimensions. No harm done.
The & is for coordinate variables and, by definition,
these must be monotonically {in,de}creasing one dimensional




Th attributes 'lat2d' and 'lon2d' are reserved attribute names.
NCL recognizes these and will plot the data correctly.

Please note the use of @ to assign attributes.
