Data files for some examples
Example pages containing:
For a whole suite of examples using NCL to plot WRF-ARW data, we
recommend that you visit the WRF-ARW
: This example shows
how to overlay precipitation contours on a terrain map, each with its
own color map. For the two lowest precipitation contours, the colors
are set to transparent. Since two color maps are used here, one of
the labelbars is drawn horizontally, and the other vertically.
wrf_contour and wrf_map_overlays are used to create the
plots. Using these functions allows you to take advantage of the
metadata on the WRF file for special titles.
There's a version of this script that uses gsn_csm_xxx
functions to do the plotting on
the contour-on-contour page.
Thanks to Dr. Craig Mattocks at the Center for Environmental Modeling for
Policy Development, UNC-Chapel Hill, for providing the inspiration for
this example and helping fine-tune it.
