For all calculations on NetCDF files (including your example), you can
try NCO[1]. These command-line tools require extensive documentation
reading, and I recommend keeping a log of notes for commands that
work. Many useful examples are also provided in the documentation.

I used ncview[2] to view and produce images for animations used in
presentations (using imagemagick). All my NC files were in a small
region using UTM coordinates, so many viewers didn't know how to show
the data.
