I have a data/software question that's been draining the life out of me for the last couple of days.

OK, I have access to some dataset at BADC
(to be more specific HadCM3 dataset), it is basically monthly data in the .PP format and I can convert it to NetCDF. But I know nothing about NetCDF. What I'd like to do is to replicate something similar to this article."Simulating multiyear drought events in North America with the HadCM3 climate model
Any insights with respect to this issue will be greatly appreciated. Oh and yes, and finally if you have any insights with regards to what kind of software to use in order to manipulate this type of data will be appreciated as well.
So the question boils down to this basically, If you were me, how would you start working on this dataset?
