Computes the stream function and velocity potential via spherical harmonics given u and v on a fixed grid.
procedure uv2sfvpf ( u : numeric, v : numeric, sf : float or double, vp : float or double )
wind components (input, arrays with two or more dimensions, rightmost two dimensions must be nlat x nlon)
- input values must be in ascending latitude order
- input array must be on a global grid
stream function (output, same dimensions as u and v, values will be in ascending latitude order)vp
velocity potential (output, same dimensions as u and v, values will be in ascending latitude order)
Given wind components u and v, uv2sfvpf computes the stream function and the velocity potential and returns the results in the arrays sf and vp. uv2sfvpf operates on a fixed grid.
This procedure does not handle missing values (defined by the _FillValue attribute). If any missing values are encountered in a particular 2D input grid, then all of the values in the corresponding output grids will be set to the missing value defined by the output grids' _FillValue attributes.
Note: For the arrays whose last two dimensions are nlat x nlon, the rest of the dimensions (if any) are collectively referred to as N. If the input/output arrays are just two dimensions, then N can either be considered equal to 1 or nothing at all.
Arrays which have dimensions N x nlat x nlon should not include the cyclic (wraparound) points when invoking the procedures and functions which use spherical harmonics (Spherepack).
Compute the stream function and velocity potential, given the u and v wind components on a fixed grid.
begin nlat = 73 ; dimensions mlon = 144 mlon1 = mlon+1 fbfile = "uv300.hs" nrec = fbinnumrec(fbfile) ; total number of records in the file ntim = nrec/2 ; number of time steps in dataset uvmsg = 1e+36 sf = new ( (/nlat,mlon /), float, uvmsg ) ; stream function vp = new ( (/nlat,mlon /), float, uvmsg ) ; velocity potential do i = 0,nrec-1,2 month = 1 ; january if (i .ge. 2) then month = 7 ; july end if work = fbinrecread(fbfile,i ,(/nlat,mlon1/),"float") u = work(:,0:mlon-1) work = fbinrecread(fbfile,i+1,(/nlat,mlon1/),"float") v = work(:,0:mlon-1) uv2sfvpf (u,v, sf,vp) ; u,v ==> stream function + velocity pot end do end
If jer or ker is equal to:
1 : error in the specification of nlat
2 : error in the specification of nlon
4 : error in the specification of N (jer only)
