[ncl-talk] from staggered grid field to interpolated unique grid field

Hi Dennis,
I'm doing this interpolation because my veocity output (U and V datasets) will be use in another code which aspect both U and V on a T-Grid.
Interpolating U and V separatly on a T-grid I think is good.
I tried to do this with the following ncl script but I wonder if there is a way to optimized this script (is a bit time consuming)
In order to define the field near the coast I extrapolate the field using the ncl function "poisson_grid_fill" with arguments:
guess_type=1,nscan=2000,epsx=0.001,relc=0.6. Are these values reasonable)
It is possible to extrapolate with this function not in all the Land-points but just near the cost? (this can help to save time)
thanks
Francesco

The Arakawa C-grid has the U, V and scalar (?T?) variables on separate grids.
To *my* knowledge, the ESMF regrid package does not interpolate vector wind components. Wind components should be interpolated together on the sphere. The wind speed is conserved but the magnitudes of the wind components will vary. For u and v on the same grid
uNew = u*cos(rot) - v*sin(rot) ; rot - rotation angle
vNew = u*sin(rot) + v*cos(rot)
Actually, on the Arakawa C-grid, since u and v are on separate grids the appropriate rotation angles would be different also.

What is the objective of the interpolation?
If it is 'just' graphics, then, maybe, interpolating the the V-grid and U-grid separately to the T-grid would be acceptable.

Dear ncl team,
I using ncl and I'm producing 2 netcdf files of meridional e zonal velocity definite on the stagarate grid (C_arakawa U e V grids) and I need to pass this datasets to a collage on a unique T grid.
Is there in ncl some build-in-function which from 2 netcdf file with u e v defined in a staggered U e V grid produce a file with u and v field interpolate on T grid?
thanks
Francesco?
