[ncl-talk] multiplication of two martixes

Check if the orginal matrices a and b have entries with _FillValue, which
is probably the
default 9.969209968386869e+36 that you see in the result.
_FillValue elements in your matrices mean the data is undefined, not a
number.
Hence, you can't multiply them legitimately, from the Mathematics point of
view.
One workaround, which is not necessarily what you want or even
mathematically sound,
would be to replace the _FillValue entries in a and b by 1.0 (the neutral
element for
multiplication).
That can be done using the "where" function, before you multiply.
However, the right way to go about it is to start with matrices with no
_FillValue.
I hope this helps,
Gus Corea
