CALWRF modifies only the wind fields, to "de-stagger" them: interpolate
to the gridbox centers.  However, it only writes out the fields that
CALPUFF needs, and skips many other parameters that WRF writes out.

I generally use NCO (http://nco.sourceforge.net/) or NCL
(http://ngwww.ucar.edu/ncl/) for simple stuff, but often resort to using
R (www.cran.org) with the NetCDF plug-in.  

See http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/data/gridded/tools.html for a good
list, and some examples of each.
