Mary,

I noticed the same error meanwhile after sending you the results. And I tried then:

copy_VarCoords(x1(:,:,:),c)

but the output from:

copy_VarCoords(x1(:,:,0),c)

is same as above. "No Difference between two". Can you explain the reason?

Thanks

Ibraheem,

You need to pay attention to error messages:

(0) ERROR: copy_VarCoords: dimension sizes do not match

I didn't notice this before, but you are trying to copy the "lon,

time" coordinates to an array that's dimensioned "lat, lon".

Change your copy_VarCoords call to:

copy_VarCoords(x1(:,:,0),c)

This will access the "lat, lon" dimensions of x1.
