[ncl-talk] Assign lat lon cordinates to polar stereographic coordinate

Thanks alot Dennis
Is there any way to average this variable only with latitude? I have done after regriding using ESMF_regrid function, but is it possible without regriding this temperature variable?
I want to plot a depth vs longitude contour plot averaged over time and latitude.
Regards
Sourav

See:
http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Functions/Contributed/getind_latlon2d.shtml
and/or
http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Functions/Contributed/region_ind.shtml
Then
http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Functions/Built-in/wgt_areaave2.shtml
Ideally, the weights (areas represented by each grid point) would be available in 'some file.' Or, perhaps you could construct them
or, perhaps, just use
wgt2d = cos(rsd*lat2d) ; rad converts degrees to radians
Good luck

Also make sure to perform the short to float conversion before working with your data!!!

Assuming from your filedump you do have coordinate variables associated, so the following should easily work.
temp_avg=dim_avg_n_Wrap(temp(:,:,{40:50},{-30:-10}),(/2,3/))
Otherwise you would have to convert the latitude/longitude variables from 2D to 1D, use the ind function to find all the indices that map into your box, convert again into 2D indices with ind_resolve, subset temp with these indices, do the average.

Thanks alot Mary for the explanation.
Actually I need to do some area averaging for which I have the lat lon information e.g say, surface temperature averaged over 40-50N and -30:-10E. How to perform this spatial averaging with this temperature(time,depth,y,x) variable?
Thanks
Sourav

Sourav,
I'm not sure what you mean by "converting my variable".
Since your latitude and longitude arrays are two-dimensional, you cannot associate them with "temperature" in the same way that "y" and "x" are currently associated with "temperature" as coordinate variables. This is a NetCDF limitation that requires that coordinate variables be one-dimensional and the same length as the dimension they represent.
You already have a "coordinates" *attribute* associated with "temperature", that indicates which variables represent the lat/lon arrays for your data:
temperature:coordinates = "longitude latitude" ;
This is how we would normally suggest that you "associate" 2D lat/lon arrays with a variable on a NetCDF file, so really, your "temperature" variable looks pretty good as it is.

Hi all
I want convert my variable (temperature) to temperature (time,depth,lat,lon) from temperature(time,depth,x,y)
here is how it looks like now.
Any help!
