We can use the ncread command for reading the data from NetCDF files.
The following code might be used to read NetCDF files given that all the files are stored in a particular folder called netCDF_files:
folderName = "netCDF_files";
fileinfo = dir(folderName);
fnames = {};
arr_3d = [];
for i=1:length(fnames)
filePath = fullfile(folderName,fnames{i});
arr = ncread(filePath,variable);%variable is the name of the data variable that we are trying to read.
arr_3d = cat(3,arr_3d,arr);% Here we are assuming that the data obtained using ncread is a 2D array and we are creating a 3D volume by concatenating them
mean_nc = mean(arr_3d,3);
max_nc = max(arr_3d,[],3);
min_nc = min(arr_3d,[],3);
Hope this helps!
