Regarding Chlorophyll_MODIS_Aqua_data

User Question:
I have a query regarding the MODIS_Aqua chlorophyll data. The format of the data is shown in HDF (refer screenshot) but when I checked the data in remote-http link, all the data is available in .nc format. I have checked the same data on http://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/ but there also data is available in .nc format. So, from where can I get the data in .hdf as shown in this screenshot?

If .hdf is not available then guide me to open this .nc file cause I have tried open in ENVI, ArcMap, Erdas. It's not opening in any of this software. Which tool can I use to perform of the analysis? You are requested to please guide me for the above query as soon as possible.

The dataset you are referring to is the old version, the new version is in the following link and it is in netCDF format.

https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/MOD ... _V2014.0_R

There are many programming tools to read and analysis netCDF data files, these tools are available in the above link at Data Access tab (check the attached image).
The popular visualization software is Panoply, the netCDF, HDF and GRIB Data Viewer which can be downloaded and installed from GISS website http://www.giss.nasa.gov/tools/panoply/
