[Wrf-users] Compressing NetCDF

Does anyone know of any better compression software other than
zlib/gzip for data formats like NetCDF ? I find that if the WRF output
NetCDF file has only few variables say Pressure P, Temperature T etc.
then gzip/zlib performs very poorly, namely the compression is from
892K (original) to only 742K (gzip-ed).
