```[1] Consider x(ntim), y(ntim) where ntim is the total number of days across
all years .
eg: 10 years would yield 10*365 values (few extra for leap years). If
not in this form ... put them in this form.

[3] rfz  = 0.0
nfz = 0
nDay = 92                                    ; season length
do ns=0,nSea-1                           ; season or year
iStrt   = iSea(ns)                      ; index values to select
start of desired seasons
iLast  = iStrt+nDay-1
r        = escorc(x(iStrt:iLast),y(iStrt:iLast),...)   or
esccr(...)

nfz    = nfz +1
rfz     = rfz  + 0.5*log((1+r)/(1-r))     ; Fischer z-transform
end do

rfz     = rfz/nfz                                           ; mean zf;
test with this
