Category List of NCL Application Examples

[List of tips, resources, functions/procedures and the example scripts they appear in.]

[Example datasets | Templates]

This page contains links to hundreds of NCL scripts, and in most cases, a link to the graphic produced by that script. You can download any one of these scripts and plug in your own datasets. You can also download all of the scripts as a compressed tar file. (Use "tar -xvf ApplicationScripts.tgz" to extract the scripts.)

Most of the examples on this page use the GSUN interfaces. For best results, install the .hluresfile in your home directory before running any of these scripts.

Click on any green category for a separate page of that category's listings only, and possibly more information.
