The "grd" file suffix is not currently in the list of suffixes associated to the 
NetCDF format. Those suffix are currently:

"nc", "ncml", "cdf", "grib", "grib1", "grib2", "grb", "grb1", "grb2"

Could you try renaming the file with any of the above suffix and see if it 
works? If the "grd" suffix is commonly used, I will add it to the list tomorrow.

Of course, the geotk-coverageio-netcdf.jar file and the netcdf.jar file needs to 
be on the classpath.
