satanal code needs to be consistent with the order of dimension variables in multi-dimension fields in NetCDF SatRad writefiles

Description

"satanal" is a software package consisting of a Python module and a number of small example scripts. The module contains a number of functions and objects which are used in analysing NetCDF SatRad writefiles. The example scripts demonstrate how to use the functions in the module. The code is being developed as newer functionalities are identified during SatDA research, however the basic code is now reasonably stable.

One inconsistency in the code which recently surfaced is the assumed order of dimension variables used in multi-dimensional fields. The "satanal" module assumes the dimension variable, "channels" to be the first index followed by "obs" as a second index. However the example scripts assume the order to be the other way. This ticket describes a resolution of this inconsistency.
