```Hi Guigma,
For 1 dimensional series you can use the following. however, you would need
to adapt this to your 3D data sets through loops/ind function and need to
do TESTING, this is a very time consuming process.
begin
;  X1 = (/0,1,0,0,1,1,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,1,1,1,0,0,1,0/) ; orignal
X1 = (/0,1,0,0,1,1,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,0,1,1/) ;
for testing

X2 = new(dimsizes(X1),integer)

do n=0,dimsizes(X1)-1
if(n.eq.0)
if(X1(n).eq.1.and.X1(n+1).eq.0)
X2(n) = 0
else
X2(n) = X1(n)
end if
end if

if(n.gt.0.and.n.lt.dimsizes(X1)-1)
if(X1(n).eq.1)
if(X1(n-1).eq.0.and.X1(n+1).eq.0)
X2(n) = 0
else
X2(n) = X1(n)
end if
else
X2(n) = X1(n)
end if

end if

if(n.eq.dimsizes(X1)-1)
if(X1(n).eq.1.and.X1(n-1).eq.1)
X2(n) = X1(n)
else
X2(n) = 0
end if
end if
end do
print(X1+" ... "+X2)

end

Note I have NOT tested it as much one should so I would let you to test and
find out if that is what you are looking for.

Cheers,
Rashed
