Geeta,

I'm assuming the variable in the NetCDF files is named "APCP_03".  If
not,
just switch in the actual name.  You can run the following pcp_combine
-add
command:

pcp_combine -add \
   3B42.20110422.09.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110422.12.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110422.15.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110422.18.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110422.21.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110423.00.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110423.03.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110423.06.7.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
   3B42.20110423.06.7_APCP_24.nc

The last file listed is just the output file name I chose.  But you
can
name it whatever you'd like.

John

Hi John. Your help is needed at every step. Now I want to know which
software can be used for making the QUILT plot (intensity and spatial
distribution) plot. Can It be done in using MET5.0. How Can I plot the
point data that I used in MET5.0???KIndly guide me. Also pls tell me
if u can figure out the issue of 3hrly RF accumulations if the files
are in the NETCDF format. Geeta

thanks John.  the pcp combine tool uses only GRIB1 files. these were
netcdf files (attaching one).I had downloaded the NC files from

From: John Halley Gotway

Geeta,

Regarding 3-hourly RF accumulations, if MET is able to read those
NetCDF
files, you can run them through PCP-Combine to "add" them all
together.
Just use the example PCP_Combine command I already sent you but modify
the
"name" entry to list the name of the NetCDF variable you want to use.
If
MET is not able to read them, then it's up to you to figure out how to
accumulate them.

If you're familiar with R, you could use the "ncdf" library in R to
read
data from one or more NetCDF files, add them up, and write it out to a
new
file.  Alternatively, "nco" (NetCDF Operators) provide some capability
of
doing simple operations on NetCDF files.  You might be able to use
them.

Regarding quilt plots, I've only used R to make them in the past.
Specifically, the "quilt.plot" function in the R package named
"fields".
Please take a look at this website:
   http://www.dtcenter.org/met/users/downloads/analysis_scripts.php

The Rscript named "mode_quilt_plot.R" provides an example of using R
to
make quilt plots.  Example output from that script is also included on
that
page.

Thanks,
John

Hi John.
the link
http://www.dtcenter.org/met/users/downloads/analysis_scripts.php has
the plots for the cnt statistics.
I am not familiar with R. I am going thru the plot_cnt.R script.
but I want to know what will be the data format for the Quilt plot.
Do I have to write my own script???.
Kindly let me know about the data format and how I have to modify the
above script in order to make the quilt plot.
Regards
Geeta

Subject: combining nc files together
From: John Halley Gotway
Time: Mon Jan 26 09:58:32 2015

Geeta,

On that webpage (
http://www.dtcenter.org/met/users/downloads/analysis_scripts.php),
please
look specifically at the script named "mode_quilt_plot.R".  Here's the
direct link to that script:
   http://www.dtcenter.org/met/users/downloads/Rscripts/mode_quilt_plot.R

And here's a direct link to the sample output that script creates:

http://www.dtcenter.org/met/users/downloads/Rscripts/SAMPLE_mode_quilts.pdf

This is an example of using R to make a quilt plot for the output of
the
MODE tool.  You might also use a quilt plot to display fractions skill
score from the Grid-Stat tool, if you've run FSS for multiple
thresholds
and neighborhood sizes.

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Thu Jan 29 04:35:35 2015

Hi John.
So I was able to sum up all the 3 hourly TRMM files and then convert
the final file into One called Obs22apr2011.bin.
I have done that using Grads and now I am using the R script for
converting into NC.
But I got the error.
aditya at agniilap:~/geeta/installs/met/RUN_MET-22apr2011$ Rscript
../trmm_to_nc/trmmbin2nc_mod.R Obs22apr2011.bin Obs22apr2011.nc


ERROR: Can't figure out the accumulation interval!

I am sending you the data files and the R script (I changed the
domain).
The data is plotted fine. Also pls tell me about the ncview questions
that I was asking. reg the plotting of MPR's
Kindly suggest.
Geeta

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Fri Jan 30 01:03:34 2015

Hi John.
I changed different widths in the configuration file. (Width=1,3,5,,7
etc).

// Neighborhood methods
//
nbrhd = {
   vld_thresh = 1.0;
   width      = [ 7 ];
   cov_thresh = [ >=0.5 ];
}
and got various outputs (for different widths) which are in different
directories.
Now I saw the R script on the website which is probably exclusively
for the MODE TOOL only.
Now my question is how to make the quilt plot for the GRid stat
tool???.
Sorry I m not familiar with R  now.
Pls help.
Geeta.

Hi John.
So I was able to sum up all the 3 hourly TRMM files and then convert
the final file into One called Obs22apr2011.bin.
I have done that using Grads and now I am using the R script for
converting into NC.
But I got the error.
aditya at agniilap:~/geeta/installs/met/RUN_MET-22apr2011$ Rscript
../trmm_to_nc/trmmbin2nc_mod.R Obs22apr2011.bin Obs22apr2011.nc


ERROR: Can't figure out the accumulation interval!

I am sending you the data files and the R script (I changed the
domain).
The data is plotted fine. Also pls tell me about the ncview questions
that I was asking. reg the plotting of MPR's
Kindly suggest.
Geeta

From: John Halley Gotway

Geeta,

I don't have time to adapt that Rscript for your use with Grid-Stat.
However, we did do something very similar for a previous project.  I
have
attached an Rscript named "fss_quilt_plot.R" you could easily adapt to
create a quilt plot for your data.  I've also attached a copy of the
paper
for which this script was used.  Please look at figure 7.

Thanks,
John

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Sun Feb 01 23:27:15 2015

Hi John.
This is an old Ticket. Kindly sort this issue too.
I was able to sum up all the 3 hourly TRMM files and then convert the
final file into One called Obs22apr2011.bin.
I had used Grads for summing up all the 8 files. and now I am using
the R script for
converting into NC.
But I got the error.
aditya at agniilap:~/geeta/installs/met/RUN_MET-22apr2011$ Rscript
../trmm_to_nc/trmmbin2nc_mod.R Obs22apr2011.bin Obs22apr2011.nc


ERROR: Can't figure out the accumulation interval!I am sending you the
data that I converted using Grads.

Subject: combining nc files together
From: John Halley Gotway
Time: Wed Feb 04 11:21:18 2015

Geeta,

The trmmbin2nc.R script is set up to only handle the TRMM binary data
exactly from that website.  The timing information for that binary
data is
only contained in the file name, and you've renamed those files.  So
the
script doesn't know how to parse them.

Here's 2 options:
(1) Rename that file using the "daily" file naming conventions:
   cp Obs22apr2011.bin 3B42_daily.2011.04.22.7.bin
   Rscript 3B42_daily.2011.04.22.7.bin 3B42_daily.2011.04.22.7.nc

That will produce output but it'll assume the precipitation is
accumulated
for 24-hours from 20110422 00Z to 20110423 00Z.  If the times should
be
something different you could... edit the Rscript to use the times you
want... or use the "ncatted" tool to modify the timing information
listed
in the output NetCDF file.

(2) Or, as we've discussed in the past, you could run each of the 3-
hour
files through the trmmbin2nc.R script and write out NetCDF files.
Then run
those 3-hourly NetCDF files through pcp_combine to add them up.

Thanks,
John

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Thu Feb 05 02:02:47 2015

Hi John.
Thanks for wonderful ideas.
The first one is working. but I have yet to run grid_stat to see if
everything is working finally. I ll try the ncatted.

To sum up all the nc files (for the times that I want), I did try the
pcp_combine. But I guess It only works for the GRIB files.
I have sent to u the error before. I tried to use MET3.0 for that
which is installed in my HPC.
I have 5.0 on my personal system. Will try that exercise in this
system.
Thanks again for your help.
Geeta

Subject: combining nc files together
From: John Halley Gotway
Time: Thu Feb 05 10:33:59 2015

Geeta,

You're correct, you can only use the "sum" command of pcp_combine for
GRIB1
or GRIB2 files...

But, you can use the "add" command on any gridded data file format
that MET
supports.  Adding together 8 NetCDF files with pcp_combine would look
something like this:

pcp_combine -add \
file1.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
file2.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
...
file8.nc 'name="APCP_03"; level="(*,*)";' \
APCP_24.nc

It makes for a longer command line, but it is possible to do with
pcp_combine.

John

Hi John.
Thanks for the article. It is very informative.
I dont know if i should be asking at this forum, the meaning of the
"FORECAST skill associated with the Uniform forecast" as you have
mentioned in your paper.
If U give me some references, it would be great.

Subject: combining nc files together
From: John Halley Gotway
Time: Wed Feb 11 10:17:33 2015

Geeta,

I think your reference to an article must be from a different email
chain.

I see that you're asking about "FORECAST skill associated with the
Uniform
forecast".  Are you looking for more references related to
neighborhood
verification statistics, like Fractions Skill Score?

Thanks,
John

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Wed Feb 11 22:44:21 2015

hi John.
I had read ur article that U have sent reg the FSS and the MODE tools.
I could not understand the meaning of FORECAST SKILL associated with
Uniform FOrECAST. This is what is mentioed in the FSS section of Ur
article.
I didnt understand the concept/idea. if U could just explain a little
more I can build/read some articles that you would suggest.
Thanks for ur help.
Geeta

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Mon Feb 16 04:32:17 2015

Hi John.
In Your article, FSS is defined as the
FSS (n) = 1 - (MSE(n)/MSE(n) ref).

In another paper's I found it to be little different. It was related
to the FBS Fractional Brier Score.

Can U pls explain be the differences???.
Also I came across SpatialVx package.
Does that also provide all the verification procedures???

hi John.
I had read ur article that U have sent reg the FSS and the MODE tools.
I could not understand the meaning of FORECAST SKILL associated with
Uniform FOrECAST. This is what is mentioed in the FSS section of Ur
article.
I didnt understand the concept/idea. if U could just explain a little
more I can build/read some articles that you would suggest.
Thanks for ur help.

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Tressa Fowler
Time: Tue Feb 17 13:47:06 2015

Hi Geeta,

The paper we sent was not A reference, it was THE reference, the
original published work on the FSS. Of course, algebra allows
equations to be expressed in many equivalent formats. Feel free to use
whichever form you like.

The Spatial Vx package has many verification methods, but it is
relatively new and untested. I'm sure you can reference that package's
documentation for full details of the available methods.

Happy verifying,

Tressa

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Thu Feb 19 02:11:20 2015

Hi Tressa and John.
This is  a query reg the FSS again.
I have been reading about it and got to know that FSS
FSSuniform=0.5+f0/2 and
FSSrandom=f0
Q.1. Pls tell me how will i calculate these two quantities ie.
FSSuniform and FSSrandom, I mean how will I calculate f0???

So the NBRCNT o/p is giving me FSS value.
Q.2. Suppose I take the NBR_width =1,3,5,7 etc......
How Can I see how many points have matched points.
I had asked you this ques before too. but I could not get the reply.
I can see the nc o/p which I opened using ncview. I could not
interpret the o/p.
Kindly guide me on this.

Hi Tressa and John.
I want to know if MET5.0 has neighborhood methods defined for point
observations???.
If Yes, Pls guide me with this.

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Thu Feb 19 08:26:26 2015

Hi John. I want to know, Can I make the Figure 6 that is there in Your
paper. I mean the Forecast Grids or the OBSERVATION grids where the
thresholds increases a specified value.
I wish to calculate the FSS manuually so that I absorb the idea.

Subject: combining nc files together
From: John Halley Gotway
Time: Thu Feb 19 10:59:15 2015

Geeta,

I think that's a great idea for you to work through the details by

understand how the score is being computed.  Figure 6 is just a little
cartoon done in powerpoint to demonstrate the computation logic.  It
wasn't
computed using any real data.

Subject: combining nc files together
From: Geeta Geeta
Time: Fri Feb 20 03:15:49 2015

Hi John. I was trying to mask my entire domain except 9x9 points in
the CENTRE using the following entry in the GridStatConfig file.  MY
purpose was to retain only 9x9 points both in FCST and OBSERVATION so
that I can calculate the FBS and FSS for these mannually. I
used--------------
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//// Verification masking regions//mask = {   grid = [ "FULL" ];
poly = ["mydom.poly"];};
I have put the file mydom.ploy in the directory.
.................................... and my working dir. So grid stat
run fine.

83.25~
~  Grid_stat was run perfectly but when I look at the
the O/P. vi  ./out-
19jun2006_w7/grid_stat_270000L_20060620_030000V_nbrcnt.txt
I get again 870 and 554 TOTAL MPRS. What is meant by these numbers???.
I am sending you the O/P. Pls tell me what's happening????

I am sending you 3 files. CONFIG file, mydom.poly and O/P file.
According to me, there should be 9 MPRS???.
Also, Some more background information. My Domain starts from 9/74E
and 37x37 points in the X and Y directions, Final grid point would be
18.25/83.25.  @ rate of 25kmx25km. (TRMM data). So I have masked the
entire domain (by using poly file) except these 4 points, extremes of
those are given below.
13.5/78.25 to 14.0/78.75 . (lat will vary like 13.5,13.75,14 and lon
will vary 78.25,78.5,78.75).
Pls tell me about the MPRS that got generated. ?????ie. 870 and
554???. Geeta

John another thing. for my data, 37x37=1309. Some points will have 0
values too. Why am I getting 870???. What grid points have been left
out???
In my experiment case I should get 9x9=81 MPRS?.
Correct??????????????MPRS in this context is the Number of grids in
FCST and Observations. But the CO-LOCATED OBS and FCST grid point may
have different values (say 0 for OBS but 1 in FCST) after we convert
that into Binary???
Also U have not explained me about the calculation of F0 (Random
FCST). How to calculate that or does GRID_STAT will calculate for
me????. Pls tell me these 3 things/questions!!!!!!!!!ThanksGeeta

Hi John. I was trying to mask my entire domain except 9x9 points in
the CENTRE using the following entry in the GridStatConfig file.  MY
purpose was to retain only 9x9 points both in FCST and OBSERVATION so
that I can calculate the FBS and FSS for these mannually. I
used--------------
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//// Verification masking regions//mask = {   grid = [ "FULL" ];
poly = ["mydom.poly"];};
I have put the file mydom.ploy in the directory.
.................................... and my working dir. So grid stat
run fine.

the O/P. vi  ./out-
19jun2006_w7/grid_stat_270000L_20060620_030000V_nbrcnt.txt
I get again 870 and 554 TOTAL MPRS. What is meant by these numbers???.
I am sending you the O/P. Pls tell me what's happening????

I am sending you 3 files. CONFIG file, mydom.poly and O/P file.
According to me, there should be 9 MPRS???.
Also, Some more background information. My Domain starts from 9/74E
and 37x37 points in the X and Y directions, Final grid point would be
18.25/83.25.  @ rate of 25kmx25km. (TRMM data). So I have masked the
entire domain (by using poly file) except these 4 points, extremes of
those are given below.
13.5/78.25 to 14.0/78.75 . (lat will vary like 13.5,13.75,14 and lon
will vary 78.25,78.5,78.75).
Pls tell me about the MPRS that got generated. ?????ie. 870 and
554???. Geeta

JohnI am also sending you the NC file. I can view this file but Unable
to interpret to be able to proceed further.May be If U can suggest
some other tool for viewing, it would be nice.

John another thing. for my data, 37x37=1309. Some points will have 0
values too. Why am I getting 870???. What grid points have been left
out???
In my experiment case I should get 9x9=81 MPRS?.
Correct??????????????MPRS in this context is the Number of grids in
FCST and Observations. But the CO-LOCATED OBS and FCST grid point may
have different values (say 0 for OBS but 1 in FCST) after we convert
that into Binary???
Also U have not explained me about the calculation of F0 (Random
FCST). How to calculate that or does GRID_STAT will calculate for
me????. Pls tell me these 3 things/questions!!!!!!!!!ThanksGeeta

Hi John. I was trying to mask my entire domain except 9x9 points in
the CENTRE using the following entry in the GridStatConfig file.  MY
purpose was to retain only 9x9 points both in FCST and OBSERVATION so
that I can calculate the FBS and FSS for these mannually. I
used--------------
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//// Verification masking regions//mask = {   grid = [ "FULL" ];
poly = ["mydom.poly"];};
I have put the file mydom.ploy in the directory.
.................................... and my working dir. So grid stat
run fine.

the O/P. vi  ./out-
19jun2006_w7/grid_stat_270000L_20060620_030000V_nbrcnt.txt
I get again 870 and 554 TOTAL MPRS. What is meant by these numbers???.
I am sending you the O/P. Pls tell me what's happening????

I am sending you 3 files. CONFIG file, mydom.poly and O/P file.
According to me, there should be 9 MPRS???.
Also, Some more background information. My Domain starts from 9/74E
and 37x37 points in the X and Y directions, Final grid point would be
18.25/83.25.  @ rate of 25kmx25km. (TRMM data). So I have masked the
entire domain (by using poly file) except these 4 points, extremes of
those are given below.
13.5/78.25 to 14.0/78.75 . (lat will vary like 13.5,13.75,14 and lon
will vary 78.25,78.5,78.75).
Pls tell me about the MPRS that got generated. ?????ie. 870 and
554???. Geeta

Subject: combining nc files together
From: John Halley Gotway
Time: Fri Feb 20 09:51:17 2015

Geeta,

I have several comments...

(1) First, you are getting two output lines because you chose two
different
masking regions: the FULL model domain and the polyline name
"mydom.poly".

(2) I used the plot_data_plane tool to plot the difference field for
the
mydom.poly and attached the resulting image (mydom.png):
   met-5.0/bin/plot_data_plane
grid_stat_270000L_20060620_030000V_pairs.nc \
      mydom.ps 'name="DIFF_APCP_A24_APCP_A24_APL"; level="(*,*)";'

That sure looks like an odd masking region.  Is that really what you
intended?  Also, you've chosen to name that masking region "APL".  I
assume
you just copied over an modified the file named "APL.poly" and chose
not to
provide a different name.  I'd suggest choosing a more descriptive
name for
that region.

(3) Your model domain is 37x37 = 1309.  So you could have a maximum of
1309
matched pairs.  Any grid points that contain missing data in the
forecast
or observation field will make the number of matched pairs smaller.
Looking at the NetCDF matched pairs file you sent me with ncview at
the
variables named FCST_APCP_A24_FULL, I see that approximately 3
rows/columns
of data contain missing values in the forecast field.  Looking
closely, I
believe you only have 991 forecast grid points with valid data values.
So
you could really only have a maximum of 991 matched pairs.

(4) Your actual number of matched pairs for the NBRCNT line for the
FULL
domain is 854, not 991.  And you're wondering why.  You're computing
neighborhood statistics using a 9x9 box centered on each grid point.
For
points near the edge of that domain, some of that 9x9 box will fall
off the
grid.  Handling these cases is controlled by the configuration file
setting
"nbrhd.vld_thresh":
   nbrhd = {
      vld_thresh = 1.0;
      width      = [ 3 ];
      cov_thresh = [ >=0.5 ];
   }

You have it set to 1.0.  When computing fractional coverage at a grid
point, grid_stat first computes the fraction of that 9x9 box (= 81
points)
that contains valid data.  If that fraction is less than vld_thresh,
no
fractional coverage will be computed for that point.  Setting
vld_thresh =
1.0 requires that all 81 points in the 9x9 box contain valid data for
that
point to be used.  Basically, grid_stat is skipping several points
along
the edge because of this setting.

If you reduce vld_thresh down to 0.5 or 0.0, the number of matched
pairs
will increase.

Make sense?

Thanks,
John

Ok John.
If I use Pcp_combine tool. then the output will be in netcdf format.
But This will be Global data.
How will I extract the data as per my domain???
