# [ncl-talk] How to calculate the escorc when the input array contain some series with all constant values?

```Did you look at your output? NCL already does what you suggest.
N=10
x  = random_uniform(-1,1,(/2,N/))
y  = random_uniform( 0,N,(/2,N/))
r  = escorc(x,y)
print(r)

y(1,:) = 5.0           ; all constant
R  = escorc(x,y)

You get the *warning*
warning:escorc: Non-fatal conditions encountered in series or xstd equals
zero.
Possibly, all values of a series are constant.
warning:escorc: Most likely, one or more series consisted of all constant
values
