    110  * Bands with different resolutions may be stored in separate files (preferred for data from different satellites) or in the same file using an additional set of dimensions and coordinate variables.
    111  * Data with different units will be stored in separate variables.

     112 * Bands with different resolutions may be stored in separate files (preferred for data from different satellites) or in the same file using an additional set of dimensions and coordinate variables.[http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/mailing_lists/archives/cf-satellite/2011/msg00059.html]

    112114 * If a specific projection is defined, calculated values for latitude and longitude are optional.
     115 * The "band" coordinate variable does not have to be defined, and if it is, it should be of the type that is most relevant to the situation (can be wavelength, polarization, band name, band number...)
     116 * All data variables must have a wavelength (indicated by standard_name "radiation_center_wavelength") or a wavenumber (indicated by standard_name "radiation_center_wavenumber") coordinate. [http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/mailing_lists/archives/cf-satellite/2011/msg00061.html]
