# [ncl-talk] Dimension size, for dimension number 0, of operands does not match

```NCL users,

I need to calculate the correlation between two variables with different lat and lon. But when I try to calculate the significance test this correlation appears this error:
Dimension size, for dimension number 0, of operands does not match, can't continue

I understand that the error is due to DOF1 and dof2 have different sizes of lat and lon, but how could I solve it in this case?
My code:
....
r   = escorc( t, t1 )   ; correlationcor= r(:,:,0,0)copy_VarCoords(t,cor)
; Calculate degrees of freedom for each time series pair; This estimates the dof in autocorrelated series.     siglvl = 0.05  dof1   = equiv_sample_size (t, siglvl,0)  dof2   = equiv_sample_size (t1, siglvl,0)
; For each grid point time series pair, choose the lesser abs value   dof  = where(abs(dof1).le.abs(dof2), dof1, dof2)   error line
copy_VarCoords(cor,dof)
rsig = rtest( cor, round(dof,3), 0)    ; r test NCL...
