Netcdf isn't an image format, it's a gridded data storage format. So you'll have to give us more information about the data in those files (dimensions?) for us to help. I suggest looking at the documentation for netcdf, ncread, etc. as well as geotiffwrite.


Actually the data set is belong from Modis Satellite "Sea Surface Temperature", it contain 9 bands sst,l2_flags,sstref,latitude and longitude etc. The dimension information for sst is shown in attached picture.
That shows me the attributes, not the dimensions. In matlab, type
ncdisp('', 'sst')
(replacing with the real name of your file), and paste the output here.
