# [ncl-talk] lonPivot

```​See my edits to your script below.

Note:  In making the lon monotonic you may have to move you're pivot point
outside of the typical 0-360 or -180-180 range.   The return lons below
range 72.5-431.5.  NCL should handle these fine for plotting etc. but if
you want to pivot around 30E, then choose 360+30.

p.s. Unless mentioned otherwise try and keep ncl-talk cc'd so other people
can assist and people can find the thread if they have a similar problem.​

lon at units = "degrees_east"
lon!0="lon"
lon&lon = lon

chi!0="time"
chi!1="lon"

;;;;  chi at lon = lon   ;;; This is incorrect and strong recommended against.
chi&lon=lon

;; chi&lon at units = "degrees_east"  Did this already, don't need to do
again.

print(isMonotonic(chi&lon))
