Hi!
I'm new to MatLab so please forgive me for my lack of understanding, but I'm trying to use sea surface temperatures from http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/ to make a correlation field. The data I want is accessible through OPeNDAP, but when I type the code the website provides:
loaddap('http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.NOAA/.NCDC/.ERSST/.version5/.sst/X/%2880W%29%280%29RANGEEDGES/T/%28Jul%201993%29%28Jun%202019%29RANGEEDGES/Y/%2820S%29%2880N%29RANGEEDGES/T/%28Jul-Jun%29seasonalAverage/dods')
MatLab tells ' isn't a valid character. So I tried the following:
>> modis='http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.NOAA/.NCDC/.ERSST/.version5/.sst/X/%2880W%29%280%29RANGEEDGES/T/%28Jul%201993%29%28Jun%202019%29RANGEEDGES/Y/%2820S%29%2880N%29RANGEEDGES/T/%28Jul-Jun%29seasonalAverage/dods'
modis =
'http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.NOAA/.NCDC/.ERSST/.version5/.sst/X/%2880W%29%280%29RANGEEDGES/T/%28Jul%201993%29%28Jun%202019%29RANGEEDGES/Y/%2820S%29%2880N%29RANGEEDGES/T/%28Jul-Jun%29seasonalAverage/dods'
>> ncid = netcdf.open ( modis )
And I got the following error.
Error using matlab.internal.imagesci.netcdflib
The NetCDF library encountered an error during execution of 'open' function - 'Malformed or inaccessible DAP DDS
(NC_EDDS)'. If the data source was an OPeNDAP URL, see the OPeNDAP Troubleshooting section in the Users Guide.
Error in netcdf.open (line 65)
[varargout{:}] = matlab.internal.imagesci.netcdflib ( 'open', filename, 'NOWRITE' );
I went to try to install OPeNDAP, but https://www.opendap.org/deprecated-software/matlab-loaddap/3.7.3 does not seem to have all of the components necessary to do so. Is OPeNDAP already on MatLab R2021a? If not how can I find everything I need to install? What do I need to do in order to use OPeNDAP data?
Any help is appreciated.

Thank you for your message. Yes, I've tried other datasets from this same source. My problem is that MatLab doesn't recognize the function "loaddap".
